Strange words tales
illustrations by Valentina Magnaschi
48 pages, 8 euros, Isbn 88-8212-443-6

How many miles is long happyness? And how many litres of peaches can you buy at the greengrocer’s? In the fantastic world described through these tales, in which you can play with words and language, very strange facts may happen: someone speaks only in verse and someone has got a saying for each situation, someone, because of his absent-mindedness, has lost the word “mummy” and someone uses units of measurement that teachers teach us at school to measure feelings and emotions. Book for children aged 8-9 and over.
