KIRKUS REVIEW

the Little One, looks forward to Easter day when all the children of the small stelli village are lifted high in the air by adults as a symbolic inducement to growth during One year. A crowd of passengers aboard Papa's carroza causes him to miss the important ceremony and unhappy Piccolina heads for the countryside where she tells a old miller her tale of woe. What a surprise when the man puts down his heavy load, straightens up to his full height and lifts Piccolina high in the air. A folk-like quality pervades this charming Sicilian tale which portrays the universal longing of all small try.
