Poo and Spring is one of the most popular children’s books published in Estonia over the last ten years. It consists of short stories in which characters from the everyday world suddenly find new ways to interact. What happens when a dog turns yellow in autumn and sheds its fur? It grows new green fur in the spring, naturally! Or what about when poop and a dandelion meet in the springtime? Everything that can happen in a kindergarten classroom can happen in this book, too!
