C’era una volta un bambino di nome Tonino che non gli piaceva andare a scuola. One upon a time there was a little boy named Tonino who didn’t like going to school.
He wasn’t a bad kid, or a lazy kid, or a dumb kid. Anything but. It was just that Tonino had a wild imagination and he liked to stay up late reading. Books by people like H. G. Wells about strange creatures who lived underground and mad scientists who could do things like make themselves invisible. All that reading make him sleepy first thing in the morning. And first thing in the morning was Teacher’s favorite time to ask the hardest questions. Even before Tonino had a chance to wake up. It wasn’t fair.
