Marco dreams of being a gondolier like his father.
As his father steers the gondolier through the streets of Venice, Marco entertains the tourist with his stories of the sights of Venice. One day a tourist leaves his camera on board the gondolier and this begins Marco’s chase through Venice to find the camera’s owner. Delightfully illustrated this book gives the reader a new look at Venice in all its glory.
