THE POCKET WATCH GANG

Davide Morosinotto

A DARING ADVENTURE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER

 

Four friends, who couldn’t be more different, have two things in common: three dollars and a burning desire to see the world.

“A tale of adventure, travel and escape”

“A coming-of-age story that rattles through a highly entertaining series of misunderstandings and mysteries which are cleverly unraveled in a talented piece of storytelling.”

* Italian Andersen 2017 winner
