不知道為什麼當我閱讀完這本書的時候,突然讓我想到我的奶奶。我的奶奶成長於台灣。在日治時代幸運地靠家裡支柱念到台北女子第二高中(今中山女中)。對於語言的興趣,他精通英、日、中三語言,在他負責說床邊故事的那一天,我便有機會可以聽到來自世界各地的童話故事。許多的外國故事情節較冗長,常常我體力不支聽到一半就睡熟了。第二天起來常常也記不得故事的情節,但是總印象昨晚聽到的那個故事真是好。Romilda The Frog就像那些對奶奶故事的童年記憶 – 故事很長…很長…書裡面那隻青蛙Romilda經歷了許多有趣的事情…….最後是個好結局。

Romilda是隻青蛙。有一天當他決定離開家去冒險…跳上了正要去城裡的農夫菜車上…意外地變成沙拉盤中的菜餚….掉進一位陌生人的帽子裡面…..

故事超級精彩。但是唯一給家長們的警告是”故事真的很長”。如果小朋友不喜歡將故事分次唸完的話,請仔細考慮是否要購買。romilda-the-frog-inside-6

推薦給爸爸媽媽們的亮點同樣是”故事真的很長”,拿來做”床邊故事”很容易讓孩子能夠入睡。

與該書作者Bruno Munair有深厚合作情誼的義大利出版社特別說明這本繪本是Bruno於1958創作,但當時未將其出版發行。可能當時該作者出版書籍多以紙本型態變化作為視覺表達藝術為主體。因此這本書到1997作者晚年才出版問世。

Previously unpublished work of 1958. It tells the story of a frog that jumping from one topic to another undergoes a series of curious and entertaining adventures.

This children’s book tells the story of a frog called Romilda, which, because she always leaps from the frying pan into the fire, has a series of curious and fun adventures, most of them with incredible surprises. She begins by leaping from a ditch where she lives with her family into new adventures. She wants to find out about the world, in leaps and bounds, in a vegetable shop, in a basket, and then under the hat of a man, and then into a bathroom, where a lady is..ahem…well I think you know what she was doing.
