Special Sashimi is about the slaughter of dolphins in Japan. The story topicted in this book is true. Each year Japan fishermen
kill around 2,300 dolphins as a form of pest control, which has been accepted as tradition. And the killed dolphins end up in freezers
and served sashimi in Japan. Illustrated with hand-sewing and watercolor on fabric. With this book, I hope to spread the true and
help stop the senseless killing of the Taiji dolphins.

Il giornalino della Domenica was the most beautiful and innovative children’s periodical
published in Italy at the beginning of the 20th century. It was founded in Florence
by Luigi Bertelli (1858-1920), a journalist and children’s book author better known as Vamba.
The most notable of Vamba’s children’s books is the humorous Il giornalino di Gian Burrasca,
which was first published in installments in Il giornalino della Domenica and is still in print.
(like many Italian children of the ’60s, I both read the book and watched the tv series derived from it
in which the leading role, a rebellious little boy, was played by the female pop star Rita Pavone). (by Laura Ottina)
