The cast of characters in Andrus Kivirähk’s new collection of children’s stories includes ghosts and laptops, dogs and cats, kids and grown-ups, sauna whisks and caterpillars. They build birdhouses, go to plays, grow nettles, and two cabbage worms even set their sights on The Avocado. A year simply flies by when you are surrounded by good friends and exciting individuals. You are made stronger by your escapades and find yourself quite many an experience richer. Perhaps there are even readers with enough resolve to extract and ponder a thing or two from between the lines of Kivirähk’s humorous and fantastical writing!
