A Day as a Dog/Idag är Åke en hund
Today Åke is not sitting at the table eating his breakfast, instead he has a food bowl on the floor. Today, Åke can’t talk, doesn’t have a jacket, and at preschool all the kids turn into dogs as soon as Åke gets there. But isn’t it a little sad not to be able to ride his bike home? And his family misses their cute little boy. Will he ever come back?
A Day as a Dog is a masterful book about imagination and play. Some days you simply just are a dog, something that the adults, the preschool – everyone, really – will just have to accept.
Over the years, Per Nilsson and Lisen Adbåges books have been praised and celebrated both for their text, but also their illustrations. Now they are collaborating again on a new title!
