don-camillo dept.

When I was in school, we were handed a reading list of classics to first read and then write a book report on. But one of the most enjoyable books I read was one that my friend Gaurav Trivedi had picked -- Italian satirist Giovannino Guareschi's The Little World of Don Camillo.

It seems that someone called Vajrang Parvate has posted this book online -- with legal permission from Guareschi's children -- the current copyright holders. Guareschi was also a famed cartoonist, and its great to see his artwork available here too.

Looks like the links to the HTML versions of the stories don't work, but you can download a PDF of the book here. Other books in the Don Camillo series are also available on the site. I haven't read any of them, and haven't checked out the online versions either. These can be found here.
