€9,95 €19,90

Three extraordinary pop ups - the work of one of the most famous paper industry engineers in the world - depict in 3D as many fantastic animals arising from the author's fervent imagination: according to the story, these mysterious beings came to Earth from unknown universes, materializing in a very remote era through a magical portal in an enchanted forest.

And so here is the very mischievous Myrmicoleon, strong like a lion but tiny like an ant, who loves to play pranks on all the other animals; the funny Aquaporco or “sea pig” with pink skin, obsessed with his appearance and very picky, a lover of water and thermal mud; the docile Bonnacon, similar to a bull but with the mane of a horse and a great friend of fairies and gnomes, who love to decorate his coat and horns with little flowers or mandalas of a thousand colours. As the story says, each of these three singular creatures brought a new light and a different shade to finally illuminate the darkness of the forest, transforming it into a riot of colours.

Compelling stories of fantastic creatures that will remain in children's imagination.
