Il mondo è anche di Tobias

(The world is Tobias' too) Book not yet available in English


Like a Little Prince, Tobias is looking for his destiny. Together with his mum Lancillotto, every morning he leaves the house to enter the world with a sword, facing giant children, little elves and evil queens. Because the world is Tobias’ too.


The book speaks to very young readers about autism, and it shows how difficult it may be for a mother to accept the cynical and hopeless verdict of science for a disease we still know very little about. With a delicate and poetic style, this book shapes a special mother-child relationship, that is based on little daily achievements and capable of going beyond conventional language. A relationship which succeeds in disproving the pessimistic expectations of medicine, and in conquering a social space where diversity is welcomed and enhanced.
