Once upon a time there used to be - and now there are no more – people who travelled by train packed like sardines and people who sat comfortably in First class. Once upon a time there used to be - and now there are no more - those who got the boot and were not able to provide for their family anymore. Once upon a time there used to be - and now there are no more - people who were forced to migrate far away looking for fortune. Once upon a time there used to be - and now there are no more - those who used scientific achievements to make money for themselves and not for everybody’s wellness. Once upon a time there used to be - and now there are no more - those who used power and force to protect and maintain all that stuff... Once upon a time there used to be - and fortunately it is still there - the little soldier of the Pim Pum Pà. He had in mind, and still has, the idea to set right what was wrong, to overturn injustice. A very topical story composed in verses by one of the masters of children’s literature, with pictures by a talented illustrator.
