One morning Caterina, a young sheperdess, doesn’t find her goat anymore. Believing it has flown away, the girl comes down to the plain followed by a witch who, in order to protect her, exposes herself to the painful sunlight. The town is a new and dangerous place and Caterina makes her short “journey to the hell” learning surprise, wickedness, fear and joy. And her story, word after word, becomes poetry for young and adult readers.
