The Catastrophic Inventions of Ciccio Frittata

The first tale of Ciccio Frittata, the phantasmagorical inventor, the world’s greatest genius, the one who comes up with the most revolutionary ideas in history! And what can go possibly go wrong when Ciccio Frittata has one of his incredible strokes of genius? EVERYTHING, obviously. Disaster is assured, and laughter too! Ready for the fireworks?

Ciccio Frittata and the Cat-Catcher Operation

The new tenant in Ciccio Frittata’s apartment building, the beautiful and charming Miss Vamponi, has a hideous little dog. It frightens Sara’s cat Frollino to death. And when Frollino gets stuck up a tree, Ciccio will finally have the chance to demonstrate his courage to his eternal flame Sara, inventing the most extraordinary device ever seen: the cat-catcher!

Ciccio Frittata and the Communal Flood

When Sara threatens to move with the whole family if a little order and cleanliness doesn’t reign in the apartment building, an idea is needed. The stairs and landings must shine again! And here’s the plan: two soapy doormats fixed under an old red bobsleigh: it’s the Clean-all Fireball! Add water pipes and a tsunami coming down from the attic, and everything will soon shine again!

Alessandro grew up in the hilly region of Monferrato before moving to Turin. There, he gained a degree and Ph.D. in philosophy, just in time to discover that the world didn’t need another philosopher. At this point, his friend Pierdomenico suggested he start writing children’s stories. Since then, Alessandro has written more than thirty books, published in numerous countries.
