Fiction. Born in the Italian province of Parma, Romeo Musa (1882-1960) was an accomplished painter, photographer, illustrator and poet. His enchanting children's tale, LA LUNA SUL SALICE, draws on the folktale tradition of Parma. Translated as THE MOON ON THE WILLOWTREE, Musa here expands imaginatively on this tradition, both textually and pictorially, to create a fascinating cast of animal characters. Translated and edited by Adelia V. Williams.
