Gustavo’s life is like a dream, with everything that one could possibly wish for: a wonderful mansion, never-ending toys, delicious food and designer clothes. Yet Gustavo is not a happy child, quite the contrary. His Mum and Dad never cuddle him, they are very wrapped up in their own affairs and have little time for him. Gustavo would like to receive some warmth and affection, so with the help of a star and a little bit of magic he manages to make his parents realise that life is not only made up of obligations, but also of pleasures, and that cuddling is true nourishment for the body, the heart and the soul.

A story for all children who don’t feel loved; in reading this story they will learn how important it is to speak with Mum and Dad about their needs and their desires, so that they feel understood and can live with them «happily ever after».
The book comes with a CD with the narration of the tale and some educational tips for parents.
