Gianni Rodari and the "Fairy tales on the phone" volume

Gianni Rodari (Omegna (near Novara), 23 October 1920 – Rome, 14 April 1980) was an Italian poet, writer and a major figure in children’s literature.

The collected fables, or rather fairy tales, were born “from the occasional clash of two words, from misspellings, from puns…” (p. VI). The protagonist is accountant Bianchi, a drug representative from Varese who travels constantly around Italy, returning home to his family only on Sundays, and who every night, at nine o’clock sharp, wherever he is, phones home and tells a story over the phone to his little daughter, who cannot sleep without a bedtime story. The stories are all rather short, as the accountant cannot afford to be on the phone for long otherwise he would spend too much money (unless he has concluded good business during the day), but they are so good that the receptionists stop their work to listen to them.

Plot summary:

The Comics mouse is the 18th story in the volume.

How can a group of mice communicate with one of their own kind out of the comic books who expresses himself only in Splash, Bang and Gulp? A fable that shows how overcoming one’s limitations can create extraordinary opportunities.
