About This Book

Ariana, an eight year-old schoolgirl, discovers one morning that her magical voice has the power to change the weather. She is subsequently forbidden by the authorities from using her supernatural powers to alter the climate, but she is not prevented from simply singing. Ariana, however, has to face criticism and opposition from certain circles as she tries to build her career as one of the world's youngest and most intriguing sopranos. At once heart-rending and amusing, this is a delightful allegorical tale of personal, social and cultural change for all readers, young and old, especially those interested in education and the nurturing of talent. Malaysian author Masturah Alatas was born and raised in Singapore, but has lived in Italy since 1992. She has been published in Italy to critical acclaim. This book is her first English-language work.
