The Blue Arrow

Author: Gianni Rodari


An old Italian legend has it that Befana visits homes every year on Epiphany Eve and makes presents for children.
This is a heart-touching story by Gianni Rodari about an old lady Befana who owns a toy store. The toys watch the hum of the snowy town standing on the windowpane – obedient to their fate and the will of the whimsical shopkeeper. However, a miracle happens, and they all become alive on Epiphany Night and board on the fabulous train called the Blue Arrow and start their journey to give themselves to poor kids whose parents can’t afford to buy presents for their children. The passengers of the Blue Arrow are wonderful examples of love, self-sacrifice and friendship for all little readers.

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.
