The Little Monk of Monacelloreturns, once again beautifully illustrated with Jana Diemberger's stunning artwork

There are parts of the world where people think Bad Luck comes up from below, and Good Luck comes down from the sky. Not in Naples. In Naples bad luck and good came from just one place: Monacello.

In the second installment of the Monacello trilogy, the "Little Monk" who brings both good and bad luck is begrudgingly transformed into the Wish-Bringer. Encouraged by his mysterious friend Napolina, only when she isn't looking too closely does he return to mischief-making. There is one wish, however, that Monacello cannot grant-his own wish to know the rest of his story, the mystery of his parents, and why he came to be left outside the doors of a nunnery one cold morning.Inthis tale,Monacello faces up to his enemies and comes one step closer to discovering the truth about his past. When it comes to the Little Monk though, bad luck can never be far away, and soon Monacello is called upon to grant the hardest wish of all.
