Giovanna Hart By Clarice Ziller

To swim in that river full of shining stones was one of the most beautiful things that ever happened in her life. Somehow she knew the names of the stones: emerald, ruby, topaz, sapphire, sardonyx, onyx, jade, pearl, lapis lazuli… she just didn't see any diamonds. It made her think of her grandma’s jewelry box, the one she found in the room where her grandmother lived. It was one of those boxes that, when you lifted the lid, a ballerina appeared twirling at the sound of a funny song.” After following a rainbow through the door, Giovanna found herself in a completely different place and having the adventure of a lifetime, the biggest a 10-year-old could ever dream of. What she’s going to experience does not happen every day and is not for the faint of heart. This book will take you on a delightful adventure, the kind of adventure that can only happen when you are 10 years old. By following the Call of Laniwai, Giovanna will leave sadness, boredom, and loneliness behind. Life is supposed to be light and FUN!
