Little Giovanni is poor and homeless, but he can do something wonderful: He can juggle.

The people of Sorrento marvel at his talents, and before long, he becomes famous throughout Italy for his rainbow of colored balls that delight the nobility and townspeople alike.

But as the years pass, Giovanni grows old, and his talents begin to fail him. No longer a celebrated performer, he is once again poor and homeless, begging for his food.

Until one Christmas Eve, when Giovanni picks up his rainbow of colored balls once more. And what happens next might be a miracle. . . .

Tomie dePaola's timeless retelling - first published in 1978, now refreshed and restored in this beautiful new edition - is a masterpiece of artistry and of children's literature.
