C´era una volta una bambina che viveva in una casa piccola e semplice, senza internet. Era l’unica della sua classe a non avere internet e per questo doveva essere sempre sicura di avere tutti i compiti e gli esercizi.

I suoi genitori credevano che internet facesse male ai bambini e ancora di più alle bambine. Le avevano spiegato, prima ancora di imparare a leggere e scrivere che internet non voleva bene alle bambine.
