Il Primo Libro di Susanna.

Susanna and her little white dog Ucchi and her black bird Nicola go to the zoo. The pets' reactions to each animal are such fun! Very bright, flat sophisticated lithos looking, almost like pochoir but not, on tan card in the style of an early Disney or even Chloe Preston. The first book of a well known Italian illustrator and artist, Colette Rosselli, who went on to illustrate many books, and also, under the pseudonym Donna Letizia, to publish an etiquette advice column for many years. The primo and segundo books were originally written for her daughter. Rare in first edition, il primo libro di Susanna has been frequently reprinted in smaller formats.
