I and the PAPU

Arcadio is eleven years old and does not speak from two. From that evening of the attack in which his mother remained injured in his arm. When the Pope receives the letter of him, different from the others because there are no words but only figurines of players, he has no doubt: this child is suffering, and he must help him. Although it is the Holy Week, even if the agenda is full of commitments. Under the incredulous eyes of the guards and high prelates, Francesco takes off the dress and throws himself into his personal mission: free the child from the closet of fears in which he is locked up. And the key finds it right in the figurines of the players, of which arcadio is very passionate. Those surnames, enough, Lasagna, Parolo, Totti, make up a special language that makes the friendship to take off between the child and Francesco, soon renamed Papu as Alejandro Gomez, the Argentine midfielder of Atalanta. Arcadio trusts every day more than the unpredictable Holy Father who behaves like a grandfather, tells him stories coming from afar and takes him around in Car Sharing. And that, just like him, he has a great fear in the heart. But this arcadio still doesn't know. Friendship between an exceptional man, inspired by the most humane and more loved pontiff, and a child who to start living he needs him. Reading age: from 8 years.
