A charming, funny adventure with the irrepressible mischief-maker Vitello

Vitello wants to be a tough guy, and with his mum's butter knife tucked in his belt he plans to be rude to everyone and not scared of anything. Particularly not stupid dogs...

Vitello lives in a terraced house by a ring road with his mum, where the traffic is noisy and his friends are annoying. He's had other adventures and been in other scrapes too.
