In his first collection of children’s poetry, the animator and caricaturist Tarmo Vaarmets observes life with the wide-open, attentive eyes of children. What all might one see that way?

Sandwiches do squats, pastries pop into the oven, one drama after another arises in the closet, a cookbook goes on a diet, an ironing board practices irony, etc., Scores of exciting things happen in the lives of children and their loved ones – be it summer or winter, autumn or spring. Although it may occasionally be hard to manage being so busy, a good night’s sleep and fantastic friends will help you back onto the right path.

Vaarmets’s poetic world is truly warm and fun. How nice and cozy it is to stay there for a while!
