Tales to Change the World is the first of three collaborations between The Caseroom Press and Jack Zipes. The six stories are illustrated with new black and white images by Robert Mason.
In Italy, Gianni Rodari would need no introduction. A household name among educators and parents, not to mention children, he is already considered by many literary historians to be Italy's most important writer of children’s literature in the twentieth century.
The book is designed to be read in either English or Italian – with the right hand page consistent for each language. The reader simply turns the book over in order to read the version they want.
