The red truck

by Alessandro Riccioni e Nicoletta Bertelle

What happens when a child loses one of his or her favourite toys? Who will find it? And where?


A child is looking for one of his favorite toys that he can't manage to find: a red truck. He is persuaded that someone has taken it from him and so he goes looking for it, all the while talking with his mother. A familiar family scene where a mother first helps her little one, then starts to lose patience and leaves him alone in his search, also in order to make him understand the importance of tidying up and taking care of his things, before discovering that... the red truck had been in his pocket the whole time !
