Sinossi

What happens when an eccentric captain (who says "Poppycock!" all the time) gets tired of not having any more wars to fight and decides to create his own?

It's a special day in a small village on the hills.
It's the day of the mayor's daughter wedding, and everyone is ready to celebrate.
But suddenly ... A war submarine appears in the central square!
Where did it come from?! How did it get there ... without any water?!
It'll take a while to understand that the culprit is the eccentric captain who decided to declare war on the small hilltop village.
What will this crazy situation lead to?
What will happen when the captain (left alone in the depths of the sea for such a long time) starts to acquaint himself with the villagers?

A humorous story with a pacifist background about the discovery of ourselves and the world around us.
Funny, tender, surreal.

A story to make you smile and reflect, talking about friendship, pastries, kisses and smiles.
Because another life (... another way) is always possible.

For all readers aged 6 to ... 100! (Nobody is too old to dream.)
A fairy tale for everyone, with 13 watercolour and pastel illustrations.


"He couldn't actually fish, but he found it quite relaxing to sit there listening to the sound of the water flowing.
He had always seen the water from below the surface. What a surprise it was to look at it from above, with the reflection of the sun, the scents in the air and the sounds of the countryside."


Also available in Italian and paperback.

Note for the reader: this book is written in British English.

L'autore

Vanessa Navicelli. This is me.

I was born in the North of Italy, in a small village on the hills, not far from the river Po. I grew up with ‘Little House on the Prairie’, with the American movies of the 40s and the 50s (all sorts!), with Italian neorealist movies, with English 19th century novels and with Giovannino Guareschi’s novels, ‘The Little World of Don Camillo’ (which in the American movie version had Orson Welles as a voiceover narrator).
I attended a Scientific High School and then I started to study Literature and Philosophy at the University of Pavia (near Milan), where I still live today.

With my unpublished novel ‘The Bread under the Snow’ I was one of 21 finalists – from among 1,100 participants – of the ‘La Giara’ 2012 Literary Prize for Unpublished Novels, a scheme created by RAI, Italian State Television. I was in fact selected as the winner for the Emilia Romagna region.
In 2008 and in 2009 I participated, with some of my poems and nursery rhymes, in a touring poem exhibition, which was organized to spread the message of peace and to raise funds for Amnesty International, Emergency and for the Saharawi population.

I recharge my batteries under the spring sun and the winter snow. Other climatic conditions have a terrible effect on me (making me sleepy, irritable and bringing out the killer instinct in me).
I deeply love Christmas time (and have lights and decorations in my house all year round).
I have a dog whose name is Spank. He does not know how to bark. But, after all, neither do I.

I write novels for adults and young adults; and stories for children.
When I write, I try to keep four things in mind: simplicity, empathy, humour and the real desire to tell a story.

I believe in kindness. And in humour. (Maybe it’s humorous to believe in kindness …).
Frank Capra once said, “In my opinion, with humour and affection we promote good instincts. They’re a tonic for the whole world.” I endorse it.
And I also endorse Giacomo Puccini's words when he said, “I want to get to people’s heart.” I’m sure that goodness brings goodness. And I love to tell it.

I was planning to get this book as a paperback for my seven year old niece, but I thought I'd get the ebook and read it first, to see what it was like. As soon as I started reading it, I found myself smiling, page after page, and laughing out loud at others. There was not a single instance in which I did not smile.

This book is a bit like a modern fairy tale, it talks of war and peace, but it's done in an amusing way, with tact and gentleness, basically the weapons of the submarine Captain are pastries and sweets! I'd love to have to defend myself against such weapons.
This book gently teaches you (and your children) the real values of friendship, love, living in a community, but does so without preaching, with gentleness and fun.

The illustrations are wonderful, it's like reading without words, you can look at those pictures for minutes and discover new details you missed in the first instance. Truly beautiful.

This book is not only for children, but for adults too. Because it has the capacity to touch our hearts, which sometimes is buried under everyday busy-ness, and it's nice to rediscover the child in us.

I loved reading it; I was sad when the book ended, as I wanted it to go on for longer. "A Submarine in the Village" will be on my Christmas presents list for the children in the family, and possibly for some grown-ups too.

I bought the paperback for the daughter of a friend of mine.
She doesn’t like reading, and since I know how her parents are sorry for this, when I can I present to her a book.
I went to see them and then I sat down to read the story to the child. She listened and peered the illustrations, while I had fun with the story! (When the little girl started to play, I finished reading the biography and also the acknowledgements. They made me smile! Generally I don’t read acknowledgements!!! But this time I read the first ... and I wanted to see how they would end! Funny.)
In the evening, her mother phoned to tell me that, after I had gone away, the little girl asked to listen the story again, and then she began to read it alone, smiling. Not only. The child phoned to tell her cousins about the book! And she has already told her mom that she wants to organize a day in which to prepare with friends “the captain's pastries”!! (Her mom will have to invent a theme party ...)
I’ve already bought other paperbacks to give to her cousins (to help her mom with the party!). Well, I’m not a connoisseur of children's books, but ... Given the results, I SURELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!

Bellissimo. io e i miei bsmbini ci siamo divertiti ad immaginare ogni singoll personaggio. soprattutto il capitano cosi bizarro ma anche tsnto buono.
Lo consiglio vivamente perché è una storia di pace per bambini ma che piace anche ai grandi.

5.0 su 5 stelle The value of peace explained to children 11 luglio 2014
Di Lyra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I bought the paperback for my son and we read it on holiday.
I liked, in the description, the definition “a humorous story with a pacifist
background”.
I already wanted to read to my child a story that began explaining what
is the war, and especially the value of peace. So I tried with this book.
Really nice! Well written, well illustrated. It keeps alive the attention of
children (and adults. Least, I liked it very much!).
The author’s way of telling about war and peace is exactly how I hoped
for a child (I would say more but I will not spoil the surprise for those
who haven’t read it yet).
Surely he taught some things to my son. And even to me.
I don’t think there's anything more direct and effective of the fairy tales
simple language.
To have it on hand, after the paperback, I also bought the kindle version!
I can only add that I would recommend this story!

5.0 su 5 stelle A fairy tale written with grace, delicacy and humour 18 ottobre 2014
Di Ele - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I was browsing the store for some tales, looking for a gift for my friend's children, and I came across this book, which eventually enchanted me ...
Written with grace, delicacy and humour, it's a modern story, which has the same pastel shades of its beautiful illustrations. It tackles with simplicity and style important themes, such as peace and friendship, and it can be read directly from cover to cover thanks to the smooth, imaginative and lively writing.
More importantly, it will leave you with a smile on your lips.

In order to write fairy tales, an author must have preserved the purity of the children's feelings, and has to express them in a clear and simple language.
Congratulations to the author for achieving just that.
I highly recommend this book to parents for their children!
5.0 su 5 stelle Straight to the heart 2 luglio 2014
Di Marco - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I bought the book for my daughter. Although she is small, I hope soon learn to love reading. And with stories like this ... there are very good chances of that happening! The writing is simple, suitable for children. But it also goes straight to the heart of the adults. Despite being a short story, you have time to become attached to the characters (personally, I loved the little girl! - Perhaps because, having a daughter too ... Please read the chapter with the little girl I enjoyed it very much!). The illustrations are sometimes delicate and deep, sometimes comical. When we finished reading, my daughter has captured the book and remained in leaf through it. Nice to see her with a book in his hands! History therefore recommended to make children love books. (And remember a little things to adults ...)
