Osvaldo, Olivia, Olga, Odilio e un orso: altri amici con la O




Osvaldo, un orribile, spaventoso mostro, terrorizza gli abitanti del regno. Il re promette la mano della figlia a chi lo catturerà. Valentino non sembra il candidato più adatto, ma quando comincia a raccontare…
Ora Osvaldo non vuole più spaventare nessuno, ma desidera solo qualcuno che ogni sera gli racconti una storia.

Come incomincia:

“Questa è la storia di un regno, di un re e della sua figlia adorata.
E’ anche la storia di Osvaldo, il mostro spaventoso. Un mostro astuto e feroce, abile e forte, proprio il tipo di mostro difficile da acciuffare.
-Il primo che lo catturerà, la principessa sposerà-, annunciò il re.
 Quando Valentino si fece avanti, tutti quanti scoppiarono a ridere.
-Ah, ah, ah! Avete visto che mezza cartuccia?”

Olivia si veste, va in spiaggia, costruisce castelli, si ustiona, va al museo, dipinge, ascolta storie, sogna…
Un libro in bianco, nero, grigio e …rosso!
 
Come incomincia:
 
“Questa è Olivia.
Sa fare bene un sacco di cose. La sua specialità è sfinire tutti. Lei compresa.”

Questa mattina il sole si sente strano. Non sarà per caso malato?
Tutti accorrono in suo aiuto. Gli uccellini, la dottoressa, la luna Giovanna e soprattutto la nuvola Olga. Lei può passare del tempo con lui e sederglisi accanto, perché le nuvole non prendono mai la varicella!
 
Come incomincia:
 
“Oggi il sole si è svegliato un po’ pallido.
Il sole non ha voglia di fare colazione.
Al sole gira la testa.
Il sole deve rimettersi subito a letto.
Gli uccellini sono un po’ preoccupati. Il piccolo Pino dice: -Guardate… Il sole ha le bolle rosse sulla faccia!-
E’ proprio vero. Sulla faccia tonda del sole ci sono bolle rosse. Bisogna chiamare subito la dottoressa!”

Odilio ha un unico, grande sogno: spiccare il volo. Purtroppo Odilio non è un uccello, ma un topino campagnolo.
Nessuno capisce la sua grande passione, neppure il suo più grande amico, finchè un giorno la cicogna Marinella atterra proprio accanto a lui…

 
Come incomincia:

 
Odilio è un topolino di campagna, un topo campagnolo, per essere precisi. Da tanto tempo ormai sogna di diventare aviatore, costruisce ogni sorta di marchingegni, motori a vapore…a scoppio…a reazione…macchine piene di bulloni e pistoni.
E’ sicuro che un giorno spiccherà il volo!”

Un’allegra famigliola a caccia di un orso, attraverso campi, fiumi, melma, boschi, tempeste.
Finalmente giunti ad un riparo sicuro, un umido naso lucente, due grandi orecchie pelose, due occhi enormi sporgenti: è un orso. E così, via dalla grotta, dalla tempesta, dal bosco, dalla melma, dal fiume, dal campo, per finire tutti nel letto, sotto il piumone.
 
Come incomincia:
 
“A caccia dell’orso andiamo.
Di un orsogrande e grosso.
Ma che bella giornata!
Paura non abbiamo.
Oh oh! Un campo!
Un campo di erba frusciante!
Non si può passare sopra.
Non si può passare sotto.
Oh no!
Ci dobbiam passare in mezzo!
Svish svush!
Svish svush!
Svish svush!”
