Here is the Little House/Här är det lilla huset

In the small house lives the old man, the old woman and all their animals. One by one they step out the door with their own very special greeting: The pig says NUFF, the dog BOW, the cat MJAU, the hen KAKAKA and the rooster shouts COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO. Then everyone is hungry and want food. NOW! At once!

A small, but ingenious story for young children about what is important: animals and food. A classic that can be read again and again!
