A Commedia dell'Arte Tale set in the sun-drenched streets of Renaissance Venice.

Angelo longs to be a clown as famous as his grandfather Zan Polo. But times have changed and Venetians no longer flock to see Zan Polo's commedia dell'arte troupe perform in the Piazza San Marco. On Carnival Day, Zan Polo reluctantly gives his grandson a small part, and Angelo rushes off, bursting with ideas, to visit the mask and costume makers and Aunt Rosa-bella's farmyard. Things don't go quite as planned for Angelo -- but that afternoon he redeems himself and revives his family's fortunes in a most surprising way.

Celebrate the first triumph of a very young actor in Niki Daly's winning, lushly illustrated new picture book.
