Description

A special friendship, made up of little things: the walks in the park, the big horse chestnut, Mario’s meat balls, the trips to the sea. And then Michelangelo the painter, tobogganing in the mountains, watching spy movies while
eating pizza on the sofa…

Only at the end of the narration we understand who was really speaking, and who Lola really is.

The touching story of the friendship between a girl who lost her sight and her guide-dog.

 

“A poetic and intense book… an ode to happiness” (LiBeR)

“Composed of vivid, sight-free sensory details, the text’s parallel treatment of Star and Lola symbolizes the close bond between dog and human, felt rather than seen. A truly inclusive, heartfelt (guide) dog tale”. (KIRKUS REVIEW)
