"The short, concise stories are made up of the memory fragments of a girl who grew up in the shadow of war and persecution. The subtle and delicate language reflects a difficult and isolated reality and is accompanied by illustrations which complete the somber atmosphere, suggestive of a dream. The words and illustrations create a unique insightful experience. The journey begins with a small baby covered with flakes of whitewash when a bomb explodes beside her. "My mother doesn't know whether I am alive or dead. While the bombing continues, she takes me up to our apartment, fills the bathtub and dips all of me into the cold water. I immediately begin to move my arms and legs. I smile." This is the story of the "white baby" who was born into an intolerable and lawless world. It is the tale of a childhood in which "hide and seek" is life's reality and not a game, and the word "mother" is both a luxury and longing."--Page 4 of cover
Bruno, il bambino che imparò a volare by Nadia Terranova( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un bambino, ebreo. La grossa testa lo rende incerto e impacciato nei movimenti, il carattere è schivo e introverso. Curioso e attento a ogni cosa che lo circonda, è affascinato dalle eccentriche stravaganze del padre, dalle sue stupefacenti metamorfosi. Lo perderà anzitempo, ma, non volendosene separare del tutto, farà rivivere nei suoi disegni e nei suo scritti la straordinaria capacità paterna di riconoscersi e identificarsi in ogni oggetto, in ogni animale, in ogni persona. Fino a una giornata d'autunno del 1942, quando un ufficiale nazista lo ucciderà per strada, nel ghetto di Drohobycz, una piccola città della Galizia Orientale."--

A captivating story about bigger-than-usual Baltazar, and about disappointment and love. Baltazar is going into first grade, so his mother takes him to buy new clothes for school. They go to several shops but can`t find anything his size. In the end they buy a work coverall, but it bursts at the seams on his first day at school, and all the children laugh at him. Baltazar goes home and announces that there aren`t any clothes in the whole world to fit him, so he`ll never ever go to school! His mother tries to convince him, but Baltazar is adamant. Only Grandma finds a solution to the problem. She comes to his house with parcels and presents, and in the third parcel he finds new clothes his size, with even some room to spare for next year! Grandma explains that she found the right size because of her love for him. And she adds some wisdom of her own: "You see," she says, "when somebody loves you, you can never be bigger than the size of that love!"
