Author: Gianni Rodari
The present edition of GELSOMINO IN THE WORLD OF LIARS is translated from the original and is complete with poems incorporated into the novel which were excluded from different editions in various languages.
Rodari’s writing style is significant for its subtle humor which permeates the entire text.
The story starts abruptly without introduction and makes a reference to the source and it goes “I was told this story by Gelsomino…”
Gianni Rodari (23 October 1920 – 14 April 1980) was an Italian writer and journalist, most famous for his children's books, notably Il romanzo di Cipollino. For his lasting contribution as a children's writer he received the biennial Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1970 and many consider him Italy's most important twentieth-century children's author. His books have been translated into many languages, though few have been published in English.
