Einaudi Guys continues the re-edition of the classics of Gianni Rodari illustrated by Bruno Munari, two of the maximum "fantasisti" of Italian literature for boys. He returns now to the bookshop "The planet of the Christmas trees", a fable at horseback between science fiction, utopia and the glossed worlds so loved by Rodari. In this novel, a child, carried in space from a spatial vessel masked by rocking horse, meets aliens who, freed from work thanks to the machines, live in a "planet of Cuccagna" and are dedicated only to sciences, arts and politics . But what do these spatials want from him? If in the eye-sensitive eyes of an adult the plot may seem, at times, simplistic, it must be said that the book addressed absolutely revolutionary themes for the age and today still today, as the idea that children should prepare themselves from small to become the rulers Of tomorrow's world, but without losing vivacity, spontaneity and the ability to be friends of all. Reading age: for 9 years.
