Leo and the Wriggle Monster
Stories told to children

,

texts by James Bradburne
illustrations by Elisabet Ribera

Four stories for elementary-school children—“The Night Garden”, “Taylor’s Tale”, “Leo and the Wriggle Monster”, and “Zachary and the Scareghost”—revolve around history and imagination, and end with a moral, something that remains in the hearts and minds of young readers. This is precisely what happens with little Leo, a perfectionist who collects toy cars and trains and is an avid but fastidious reader. When he meets the Wriggle Monster, who upends his world, Leo is troubled by all of these sudden changes. Then he understands and accepts his new friend’s ‘diversity’. The stories, illustrated by Elisabet Ribera, confirm the talent of James Bradburne, Director General of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, as a writer of children’s literature.
