«One day in the peaceful village of Vieti, suddenly a howl broke out: “Enooough!”. It was the children of that village who, out of the blue, started screaming all together. They were protesting because they were dead tired of always hearing the word “don’t” constantly fly out of the mouth of grown-ups. So they decided to rebel, and it was a real rebellion, not a joke! They started marching on the street with banners saying in capitals: “IT IS FORBIDDEN
TO FORBID; STOP WITH “YOU HAVE TO”; ENOUGH WITH “YOU MUST”; DEATH TO PROHIBITIONS.”»
This is how it all began: a group of children, tired of hearing from others what you must/must not do, decide to overturn their parents’ rules. From now on “you must” will become “you must not”: “you must not brush your teeth”, “you must not tidy up”, “you must not eat vegetables”, “you must not go to bed early”. It is up to Gino—a quirky and solitary man—to make the little rebels reflect upon the importance of rules and the use of limits. He will accomplish this by telling funny and revealing stories. This book will help pre-school and primary school children understand and appreciate the importance or rules. It will also help parents to see children’s point of view and apply rules fairly.
