For the author, Gianni Rodari, the little man of dreams is a little prompter: while we sleep he whispers a few words to our ears, and we are immediately transported to fantastic worlds. In this lively story, images from different dreams follow one after the other, unexpectedly slipping into each other, following the words whispered by the little man. Who is then this little character whose words bring us to fantastic worlds where anything is possible? The rhyme does not say that, but in some way it seems to be… Rodari himself!
The book is in Italian.
