Super book!

The book is great and my 16month old picks it over the English version. I am a native speaker (albeit a bit rusty) so it is perfect for me but I would suggest that the reader will need to be proficient in Italian to get the full benefit. I will be on the lookout for more books like this...

This is an excellent book! It has been really nicely translated and keeps the all important rhyme. If you know some Italian and you like the Gruffalo you'll love this book! Can't wait to read it to my 3 year old!
