Giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to whale isn’t as difficult as it seems. You just need to get a few things (a hot-air balloon, 712 sailors with tattooed arms and a trained elephant, among others), and then follow the directions contained in Alberto Casiraghy and Alberto Rebori’s surreal little first aid manual for gigantic cetaceans.
Alberto Casiraghy is a writer, poet, thinker, illustrator, and founder of Edizioni Pulcinoelefante, with whom he creates small, prized books that are printed exclusively with movable type (“He is the baker of book publishers, he’s the only one who prints within a day,” said Vanni Scheiwiller).
Alberto Rebori, born in Chiavari, is an illustrator and humourist. He was awarded the Città Forte dei Marmi award in Tuscany in 1997, and the Andersen Prize for the children’s book Piccolo Re. For Corraini, he has illustrated Pellegrino Artusi’s Science in the Kitchen and The Art of Eating Well, Edmondo De Amici’s Cuore and Tu chi sei? by I Ludosofici.
