What if a large crocodile is teased by a gentleman to see if it is real or stone because it doesn't move? The poor animal, a little irritated at being awakened from his nap, opens his mouth wide and eats him in a mouthful. In "My First Dostoevsky” the story of a drunkard, a little man who thinks he can give lessons to the world and ends up in the belly of a crocodile, is adapted by Mauro Di Leo into a surprising, meandering and fun story for all ages. Illustrated by artist Elisabetta Barbaglia, aka Strambetty, My first Dostoevsky is an awsome way to make the great Russian writer known and discovered. It is never too early to start reading the classics and it is never too late to decide to recover their works.
