Telephone Tales [FORTHCOMING]

27.95

By Gianni Rodari
Illustrated by Valerio Vidali
Translated from Italian by Antony Shugaar

Reminiscent of Scheherazade and One Thousand and One Nights, Gianni Rodari’s Telephone Tales is many stories within a story. Every night, a traveling father must finish a bedtime story in the time that a single coin will buy. One night, it’s a carousel that adults cannot comprehend, but whose operator must be some sort of magician, the next, it’s a land filled with butter men who melt in the sunshine! Awarded the Hans Christian Anderson Award in 1970, Gianni Rodari is widely considered to be Italy’s most important children’s author of the 20th century. First published in Italy in 1962 and newly re-illustrated by Italian artist Valerio Vidali​ (The Forest)​, Telephone Tales​ entertains, while questioning and imagining other worlds.
