They’re Called Adults/Dom kallas vuxna

Adults. You probably know quite a few of them. They’re big and they can do almost anything. They can speak French, use a chainsaw and make perfect pancakes. They can detangle knotted hair and know just what to do when you’re sad. Adults are amazing in so many ways, but it’s not always easy to understand what they’re on about. When you look at them, adults seem pretty normal and calm. But what’s actually going on inside them? Why do they go for walks, why do they drink so much coffee and why don’t they cry when they hurt themselves?

This sweet and funny book paints an interesting picture of adults and the strange things they do. Upon closer inspection, they’re actually not all that different from children…

Illustrated by Hanna Klinthage
