Now You Are a Hen/Nu är du en höna

Barbro Lindgren and Charlotte Ramel’s excellent picture book is about children’s play and dramatic role-playing. The game turns serious between the wolf and the hen – who are as unequal as you can get.

In 2014 Barbro Lindgren received the ALMA, a literary prize in memory of Astrid Lindgren.
