Author: Nadia Cesati

Language: Italian

Summary: Cosa succede quando un Chihuahua parigino viene messo in viaggio per Bruxelles e poi su un aereo per Dubai in compagnia della sua famiglia e di un gatto dal nome stupido?
Luci e ombre di una vita da espatriati, tra la vecchia Europa e la scintillante Dubai, attraverso l’ironia di un Chihuahua grazioso e pieno di se. Che condivide le sue esperienze con una adolescente in cerca di risposte, genitori che devono scegliere per il meglio, parenti in visita, e amici espatriati. Che conosce l’importanza dei nuovi amici, la sorpresa di nuovi linguaggi, il coraggio in situazioni sconosciute, i dubbi in un trasloco, le difficoltà e le opportunità dei cambiamenti.
E con gli occhi vispi di chi vuol trovare il lato positivo, con dolcezza e spontaneità, arriva ad insegnare quello che gli uomini chiamano speranza – Fonte: Amazon.it
