Kastaniotis, 2006 (illustrations: Sofia Zarabouka)
Mom, dad and the children are leaving for vacation. But grandma and the cat will have to stay at home, because TV has just announced a great Heat Wave is coming, and animals and aged people should best stay inside. The cat doesn’t really know if he’s an animal or an old person, and he doesn’t really know who this Heat Wave is. Surely, it is the Wolf, and it is going to eat them!
A hilarious narration of a cat about a family summer event where the occasion of a strong heat wave makes us reflect on family relations, as well as climate change and social consequences.
It has been translated into Italian.
