Markus Saksatamm’s collection of children’s stories includes 26 fantastic tales about special animals: creatures big and small, sombre and mischievous, snotty and caring. We meet an athletic rabbit who plans to become a trolley, a cabbageworm who thinks the moon is a pumpkin, and a mouse whose love for foreign languages saves his family from disaster. We catch a glimpse of a parade organized by a moose who is president of the forest, and follow along with a snail who has a hard time finding friends. There are great times to be had in these fantasy woods!
