Marco lives in Liverpool, UK, without cats or dogs. This does not mean that he does not like cats, dogs, or any other animal for that matter.

"Bianca and Other Contrived Short Stories" is a fine first collection by Marco Bertamini. The illustrations are also beautiful and capture the variety of stories told. I really enjoyed 'Love', which is really witty and made me think! Holiday reminded me of times past and childhood innocence. Old and Young is also another favourite.
There is a wistfulness in some of these stories, a sense of nostalgia for times past. In others a sharp wit that makes you think.
Some stories are suitable for everyone, children and adults, some are written for an older audience. It is a collection with something for everyone. I would recommend this for everyone.
