A chapter from the Storybook, “The Story of an Invention“ is translated into Italian.

Storybook contains ten philosophical tales of bizarre adults. Among these are Hillar, who takes a long time to work up momentum for everything he does; Vahur, who is getting ready for a complete change of scenery; Jaanus, who is enthralled by water toys; Asko, who wishes to be average at everything; Timmy, who has lost his shadow; and others. The author smoothly and spiritedly mixes fantasy with reality, resulting in an exciting and relatable read for both children and adults.
