The Porcelain Nymph

An unpublished Isabel Allende story released as a colouring book delicately illustrated 30 years later.

Don Cornelio is a grey man whose life holds no surprises or variations. One day, on his way to work at a notary’s office, he finds a statue he can’t resist buying in a antique shop. Don Cornelio soon discovers that this is no ordinary statue, but a very special creature who comes alive when they’re alone. It will change his life forever, filling his days with fantasy and colour.

As the black-and-white characters are transformed, readers can simultaneously colour their own version of the story. An extraordinary book for Isabel Allende fans and colouring book enthusiasts.

Publihed by Penguin Random House in Spain, Portugal, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Colombia.
