Happy the Cobra and Miki-boo
- by Count Francesco Alessandroni
This lovely bedtime story was written and drawn by Count Alessandroni for his two grandchildren in 1969. It is a tale of friendship, loyalty, courage, and most importantly - love - a fantasy to delight all little girls and boys.
Happy is an unusual, almost magical cobra, who comes to the aid of a little boy who finds himself all alone in the world. It is a tale full of imaginative adventures and a lesson in good triumphing over evil.
Count Allessandroni was born in Italy and came to America after WWII with his American wife and raised two lovely daughters. He owned several businesses before retiring, and now over ninety years old he continues to draw and write his creative tales.
