Chissà Com'è...

Written and illustrated by Eva Montanari


In the grasslands of Africa, a group of young animals think they know all about the crocodile who swims in the river beneath their school. 

He is the most ferocious creature on earth . . . or is he? 

When the animals try painting portraits of him in Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Abstractionism, and Dada, they learn there is no one way to see anything, even a crocodile.

“Purple or Turquoise, cube shaped or made with squiggles, all of us see things in our own unique way…”

And who knows how the Crocodile sees them…
