Gianni Rodari was convinced that "mistakes are not in words, but in things..."
Nursery rhymes and stories in the name of error: distracted pupils, boring professors, athletes who are not up to date with their spelling … often “mistakes – said Gianni Rodari – are not in words, but in things; we must correct the dictates, but above all we must correct the world”. This book takes us into a broken down and disordered linguistic universe, but it is not a text of boring grammatical exercises because the magical Gianni Rodari gives rise to laughter from every oversight, changes the rules of our grammar at stake, opens a dense and very rich dialogue with the readers.
