Leni Becomes a Baby/Leni blir en bebis

Leni is sometimes an adult, and sometimes a baby. Now Leni has turned into a baby. That is should be so difficult for Dad to understand!

At first, everything is the same as always. Leni is in her bed and her little brother Sigge is in his crib. But then everything is not the same as always. Something has happened.

Suddenly, Leni knows what it is. She has become a baby, of course! Now Leni can’t dress herself, or pee on the toilet, or walk by herself … That it should be so difficult for Dad to understand!

With her books about Leni, Emma AdBåge proves once again that she is a master at capturing and portraying the young child’s emotions and expressions. She depicts exactly little children’s defiance and “do-it-yourself” age.

Dalila Dorai, Hallandsposten about We Find Crumbert
