LA NUVOLA OLGA
Nuvola Olga is a white, soft cloud so fluffy
it looks like whipped cream. Olga is a character that was created by
Nicoletta Costa for a very young audience therefore it’s characteristics are
very simple, in fact Olga never knows where to go to rain … and sometimes she really needs to rain! Olga tries to cheer up others with her rain, for example she helps to
wipe clean a dirty sheep that rolled in mud or will quench a thirsty sunflower in need of water.
Olga is always together with a little bird, her friend Ugo, they keep each
other company and care very much for one another … it’s all very surreal.
Nuvola Olga is a very successful children’s books series in Italy with
over 40 titles written and illustrated by Nicoletta Costa.
Target: Boys and girls 1-4 years old.
