A quietly joyous picture book (28 pages) by the 2022 recipient of the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. Both child and adult readers will recognise familiar human behaviours and family dynamics in this quirky story of an ordinary day in the life of an anthropomorphic bird family. Perfect as a bedtime story.
A gently emotional picture book about loneliness and friendship, featuring an old man, a girl and a dog. The text and illustrations are seamlessly woven together, as one might expect from this author and illustrator collaboration – they have won a raft of prestigious awards in Sweden, where this book first came out in 1979. The Tale of the Tiny Man can serve as a good starting point for a discussion with children about emotions relating to exclusion or inclusion.
