Where the devil have the bogeyman, the ogre, and the wolf man gone? And what’s happened to bugaboo? But there are certain wilderness reserves -the dreams of children- where you can still find them. Some fleeting signs of one little bugaboo, Ababù, have been found under the beds of various children. Nope, it’s not the work of anxious mothers or of grumpy fathers. It’s him, Ababù, forever obliged to change his lodgings: if it’s not one thing it’s another, nightmares, sickening attention... And then, well, he’s looking for Amì, his favourite child. Ah yes, children grow fond of their fears, but sometimes their fears also grow fond of them. Prize: 2006 “Primo voto” Children’s Fiction Prize
