Book review: Berta e Girolamo by Gionata Bernasconi

First reading – from 6 year old.

Italian only.

“Who is the most beautiful animal in the forest?”. Our good friends Berta the Giraffe says ‘I’ and Girolamo the Hippo says ‘No, me!’. But when they learn that a hunter wants to capture the most beautiful animal, then all of a sudden Berta wants to become like her friend hippo who is ugly and silly, and hippo wants to become like the Giraffe who is neither beautiful nor intelligent. At last they are safe………………..until a tiger comes around and hunts the most stupid animal of the forest!
Amusing story about the sometimes difficult topic of ‘identity’. Your child will enjoy laughing at Berta’s and Girolamo’s vicissitudes.

The book won the 1st Prize at the Prix VERGHERETO
