Original title: Ötökkämaan tarinat
Class/genre: Picture Book
Hytönen peers into the secret world of insects in this delightful mix of poetry and prose. Bug Forest’s array of creatures ranges from angst-filled to well-meaning but stinky, and the mood alternates between rambunctious and lyrical. His warm and descriptive prose charms both kids and grown-ups, and Virpi Penna’s gentle, unforgettable illustrations bring the characters to life.
