Dal seminterrato del grande condominio in cui vive, Paul guarda fuori dalla finestra e pensa… e se la luna fosse un buco nel cielo?
Se solo qualcuno volesse ascoltare le sue idee sul mondo! Ma Paul è un tipo ostinato e non molla. Così, per la prima volta, esce dal suo seminterrato e cerca di scoprire, con tutti i mezzi a sua disposizione, cosa nasconde il misterioso, luminosissimo astro. Da uno dei più grandi scrittori per ragazzi di oggi, un libro poetico e magico sulla libertà, il valore dell’amicizia, il potere delle idee e il coraggio di sostenerle con forza.
Età di lettura: da 8 anni.
"Non c’è davvero nessuno che sappia scrivere come Almond nella narrativa per ragazzi o per adulti di oggi."
"Una fiaba adatta per tutte le età. Un libro che unisce la profondità di visione e comprensione con una straordinaria delicatezza nel tocco. Un classico moderno."
"Una storia surreale e solo apparentemente semplice sulla libertà, l’immaginazione e l’amicizia."

This book is beautiful inside out. The writing and illustrations are very very good. Awesome.
Wow, this book was really, really bad. It wasn't engaging, it was nonsensical in the least whimsical and endearing way possible, and the characters were bland and uninteresting. Apart from Fortuna at the end, who was quite possibly the most unlikable character I've come across in a children's book - Leggi tutto
This was a joint read with my son. It was a wonderfully fantastical book which encourages children to use there imaginations and question life. It was a great little read with amazing illustrations. The characters were odd and brilliantly crackers. Great little book.
Brilliant! Bonkers! Funny! Thought provoking! Not everyone's cup of tea but I loved it. Like being alongside Alice down the rabbit hole.
hayal gücü tamam da uçarken kitabı çocuklara yazdığını unutmamalı insan...
I found the audio book on my library app by chance and decided to give it a listen, it was really cute and lovley.
I have actually never read David Almond before and the title of this book grabbed me and gave me my chance to finally read him. A whimsical story full of the unbelievable where a lonely boy who lives in a basement apartment, is rather shy, and does not like school but then school does not like him ei Leggi tutto
This story is about a young boy called Paul who is bored of living in his basement flat. He doesn’t like school, and school does not really like him. Paul believe that the moon is a hole in the sky. He decides to test out his theory. Along the way Paul meets some friends who believe in him and his m Leggi tutto
Feels a bit like a Polly Horvath knock-off, without the poetic style...or, you know, the point. Plus I keep expecting the characters to hock up owl pellets, a la Almond's Skellig . Attractive illustrations help distract from the fact that even as the title's goal is acheived, not much is actually ha Leggi tutto
I do love the David Almond. Really, I don't think there are many other authors that I "eagerly await" their new book, perhaps Keith Donahue, but that's about it. Otherwise, it's all about Mr. Almond. This is a fun little book. Not quite as good as his YA stuff, as this is much more "just for kids," b Leggi tutto
