Le Avventure di Snaschi
Die Abenteuer des Herrn Snaski
(III Edizione Weger, in Austria e Germania)
Professor Snaski arrives in Italy. Already in its third edition after a few months in Germany, it seems to be a success in Austria. Maria Rosaria Costanza’s story “The Adventures of Snaschi” is offered by the publisher Di Marsico Libri. The story tells of an unusual crew on board a ship. Among the characters the mole named Cheti stands out, who despite being born for hibernating underground, is traveling in the sky; the stars are reflected in his thick glasses. In the story the author highlights the value of tenacity and the value of perseverance. The reader learns to never disown their dreams; to look beyond the surface, the sky and its elements in order to feel like a part of the infinite … that belongs to us and is just comfortable. The book is nicely illustrated by Veronica Cestari and contains educational pages.
