Su questo libro:


Fiona French was awarded the coveted Kate Greenaway medal for her Art Deco fantasy, Snow White in New York. Now she looks far to the west, to the American desert and the Indians of the Pueblo.
The story is simple and powerful -- a tale that pits the pride and anger of a big city art dealer against the magic and purity to be found in a vase crafted by Maria the Potter. The animal symbols on the coveted magic vase -- Bear, Rabbit, Fish, and especially Snake -- are called upon by Maria to teach the greedy man the true value of all things. The stunning illustrations, using patterns derived from the Pueblo Indians, are boldly painted in the glowing colors of the Southwest to capture the mystery and the majesty of the desert.
The Magic Vase works its magic on both young and old in this enchanting and memorable new picture book.

Fiona French completed her first book for Oxford in 1967. Since then she has produced a number of brilliantly colored and imaginatively conceived picture books. She received the Kate Greenaway Medal for Snow White in New York. She lives in Norfolk, England.
