Vitello Scratches a Car by Kim Fupz Aakeson, Niels Bo Bojesen


Vitello Scratches a Car by Kim Fupz Aakeson, Niels Bo Bojesen

Vitello and his Mum have a new car. Well, nearly new, anyway. And mostly Mum's. But the important thing is that it can't get scratched, not if Vitello doesn't want to be grounded, or sent to the children's home, or worse. Vitello lives in a terraced house by a ring road with his mum, where the traffic is noisy and his friends are annoying. He's had other adventures and been in other scrapes too.


Full of quirky humour and an anarchic sense of fun that children will love

Cool characters and some great, quirky illustrations help to make this new series incredibly appealing for boys
