A Year with the Wind

When was the wind born? Where does it go? The wind is always changing, but we hardly notice it unless it is very strong. Still the wind makes its mark each and every month. A Year with the Wind by Hanna Konola is a poetic take on the changing of the seasons. The short text, combined with skilfully balanced illustrations, make this picture book unique. Enjoy the harmony that Hanna Konola magically creates.

The 2018 Jury of the Bologna Ragazzi Award assigned a Special Mention in the FICTION category for the book.
