|Having always lived as just a little piece, Pezzettino searches his town for the big thing that to which he feels he belongs, but after an exhausting search, Pezzettino finally comes to realize that he is totally complete on his own and just the perfect size the way he is. *Author: Lionni, Leo *Publication Date: 2006/01/24 *Number of Pages: 34 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Grade Level: Preschool *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 9.00 *Height: 11.00|
From the Publisher:
A confused orange cube named Pezzettino--"little piece" in Italian--searches for where he fits in, only to discover that he might actually a very special place in the world. He asks a variety of creatures, some obvious, others abstract, if he belongs to them, only to be rebuffed repeatedly. But a boat voyage changes everything. Originally published in 1975, Caldecott Honor-winning artist Leo Lionni has created a picture book about self esteem with a playful surrealism little seen in children's books today. With simple, beautiful collage art, oil pastels, and a world made of marbleized paper.
Although Leo Lionni is a popular author and illustrator of picture books, many people are surprised to find that he did not write his first book until he was a grandfather. Lionni and his family lived in many different places during his childhood including Brussels, Philadelphia, and Genoa. He attended the University of Zurich and married Nora Maffi. In 1939 he, his wife, and their two children moved to Philadelphia where Lionni worked for an advertising agency and was also the head of the graphics design department of the Parsons School of Design. In 1959, at age 50, he returned to Italy. His first picture book, LITTLE BLUE AND LITTLE YELLOW was originally created as a story to amuse his grandchildren during a tedious train ride. SWIMMY, one of Lionni's personal favorites, was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1964.
