The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily by Dino Buzzati / ISBN 9781847498236 / 171-page paperback, recently reprinted by Alma Classics Junior


A wonderful story for children and an allegory for adults about the absurdity of war with an introduction and guide to the text by Lemony Snicket.

Starving after a harsh winter, the bears descend from the mountains in search of food and invade the valley below, where they face fierce opposition from the army of the Grand Duke of Sicily. After many battles, scrapes and dangers, the bears' reign is established over the land, but their victory comes at a price.
