In this small and quiet village today seems to be a bad day. Mr. Tramontana, who doesn’t like people at all, has gone out for a walk, convinced that he won’t meet anyone. But lo and behold, the town square is full to overflowing. When the wind starts blowing harder, it takes Mr. Tramontana’s hat, and sees to it that the wind doesn’t blow him away too. He is lucky to have his neighbors, especially Verdecillo …, the smallest boy of all.
