Meet the story of Rosa, a beautiful princess who loved to sing in the gardens of the palace where she lived next to her parents, King Tancredo and Queen Serena. But even though she was so sweet and smart, Rosa refused to learn to read. Her parents tried everything, but there was no way: the girl did not want to know anything about books! However, the walk with her cat Meow and the dangerous encounter with the Serpentine, the cave witch, made Rosa change her mind. When facing danger, Rosa will finally fall in love with enchanted verses and open up gates which only poetry can reveal.
