Full Description

This book is an introspective voyage through the world of Allegra’s emotions. Allegra is a sensitive, curious child of seven and the pages mark episodes of her life and narrate her feelings of joy, sadness, fright, anger, surprise, disgust and shame – all of which are personified in seven adorable characters. The reader dives into Allegra’s inner world, narrated through paintings and fascinating illustrations where reality intertwines with fantasy scenarios. At the end of the voyage, Allegra and her readers will have learned how feelings arise and how to avoid being frightened by them as they evolve, change in intensity and break down inside of one’s conscience and how to welcome them into one’s own inner world. Allegra will learn to play on her piano all the emotional shades that distinguish her and thus be able to completely integrate her characters into her inner world. Ages: 7 plus
