A very long time ago this tale dispersed throughout the world like a seed carried by the wind. It took root in South America, Europe and Africa. In each region people told the tale using characters, animals, trees, customs and skies that they knew. Thus it developed in a different way in each land but, amazingly, always remained the same. This book follows Toads and Diamonds on its journey through different, far-off times and lands. Two characters act in opposite manner before a marvelous being – fairy, the Coquena, goblin. According to their responses, they will receive a reward or punishment.--Valerio Vidali was selected as a 2015 Bologna Illustrator! 3 Tales from Europe (France) - South America (Argentina) - Africa (Senegal)
