This truck-shaped, lift-the-flap board book combines food with things that go for a novelty that has more than gears under the hood.

Supplemented with historical information on, for example, Roman banquets or Renaissance food, plus stylish black-and-white line drawings, this guide is suitable as a gift as well as a handy reference book for the traveler's on-site use. Assembled by the Blue Guides authors and editorial team, with many years of cumulative experience visiting and eating well throughout the length and breadth of Italy.

Based on a true story, this book recounts the horrors experienced by innocent villagers in a small Italian hamlet high in the mountains during World War II. The village, unfortunately, was located on what became a very strategic position for the German army. The Nazis occupied the town, prepared to fight the advancing Allied forces and ordered the people to leave their town. Many were massacred for refusing to leave.
