This is the story of a child named Ciro and of one of those merry-go-rounds which make people fly on the seats. Ciro would like to grasp the red puppet which hangs from the pole near the merry-go-round, but he is too little and he can’t do it. During a very dry and hot summer, one day he finds a red tail coming out of the clouds: may be if he can grasp it the clouds could let the rain come down... Ciro flies on the seat of the merry-go-round and something extraordinary happens. Book for children aged 6 and over.
