This charming children's book was written by the winner of the highly coveted Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2010. It is the one of the first books to be translated into English by the award-winning Belgian author/illustrator. The endearing characters in everyday situations make these books perfect for early readers and the distinct illustration style is underpinned by a humanist sensibility.
