GMD Cover 1

Set in the glittering city of Venice in the 16th century. Daniela, the glassmaker’s daughter is so gloomy and glum, that her father offers a glass castle to whoever can make her smile. Acrobats, mask-makers, even lion-tamers try. But only one person, a young glassmaker, knows the true secret to happiness. Will he make Daniela smile?

Incredible illustrations by Jane Ray who was the IBBY UK nomination for the 2018 Hans Christian Andersen Award.

‘a magical tale from the duo behind Zeraffa Giraffa. The Venetian setting makes great use of Ray’s decorative, sumptuous artwork.’  – Fiona Noble in The Bookseller
