Fifth & Zilai is the brainchild of brother-sister duo Mario Foti and Michelle Parmigiani.

Together, they've decided to share the joy of storytelling with parents and children worldwide. Fifth & Zilai's stories are rooted in morality and individual identity. As you flip through our colorful pages with your children you can rest assured a life lesson is also being shared. Fifth & Zilai celebrates family, love and kindness and always advocates for individuality and inclusivity. The most powerful lesson we share for children and parents alike is the power we all behold by simply being ourselves.
