Claudia Mauner is an illustrator and graphic designer who has always loved to travel. She lives in Pennsylvania with her daughter, Zoe Sophia.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4-Using the popular diary format, this travelogue takes its spunky nine-year-old heroine and her dachshund from Manhattan to visit her great-aunt in Venice. They tour museums, shop for masks, ride a gondola, and observe a glassblower. Double-page watercolor-and-ink illustrations, as well as smaller framed "snapshots," are at once aesthetically pleasing and comical. Suspense is introduced when Zoe's dog disappears, but gondolier Ludovico saves the day in an endearing scene involving concerned faces stained with spaghetti al nero. The book offers bits of information, appealing characters, and a sense of the majesty and grandeur of Italy's palaces and piazzas; it will interest armchair and authentic travelers alike. Removing the dust jacket reveals a labeled map on the cover. Pair this title with Christina Bjork's Vendela in Venice (R & S, 1999), Candace Fleming's Gabriella's Song (Atheneum, 1997), or the Classical Kids CD Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery for further insights into the city's charms.
