About this title


Antonio, a street performer who admires a rich merchant's daughter, must use his talents in juggling, tightrope walking, and guitar playing when he rescues her from bandits and tries to get her home again.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 This romantic Italian adventure of long ago fairly dances off its pages. Lobel communicates all the gaiety and theatricality of On Market Street (Greenwillow, 1981), but she tempers that flamboyance with a feeling for real people. She uses a painting style close to her pictures in A New Coat for Anna (Knopf, 1986), but these illustrations have the increased liveliness necessary for this fast-moving story. Both the characters and plot are improbable, but acceptable, nonetheless, much as characters in operetta or commedia dell'arte would be. Antonio, the hero, is a talented street performer whose special friend, Daniela, sometimes slips away from her wealthy life to dance with him in the piazza. When she is kidnapped for ransom, Antonio bravely goes after her, and after many unlikely adventures, returns her to her anxious parents, who reward him. If Donizetti had collaborated on a picture book, it might have turned out a little like this one. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, Va.
