OUR STORIES

THE PHENOMENAL P.T. HELIODORE

Guido Sgardoli

WELCOME TO THE WORLD GREATEST SHOW,

THE TOTALLY TREMENDOUS THEATRE OF WONDERS!

 

The first time P. T. Heliodore ever heard an animal speak, he was ten years old. P. T. had an imagination as big as Connecticut. So while he heard animals speaking to him, he also knew his father was a king and that Alice had green hair, but not just any old green — green as the tips of spring buds. And she could fly. Yes, Alice knew how to fly. She was the feather girl.

* A magical mix of poetic, surreal and dreamlike elements.

* An effortlessly direct writing style. The combination of imagination and the paradoxical produces a compelling read that will be irresistable to everyone who loved Roald Dahl and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
