The beautiful Tommy book series created by the award-winning illustrator and author Kristiina Louhi
When Tommy wakes up in the morning, he knows right away he’s in an unfamiliar place. He can hear strange noises from outside: a baby crying, a cow mooing and a big engine running. Tommy is visiting his cousins Gertie, Artie and Willie the baby.´The world looks very different at his cousins’ place compared to Tommy’s home in the city. You can see fields, cows, woods, a huge blue silo and on top of it all a real tractor chugging in the middle of the yard! The breakfast porridge tastes familiar, but the milk is different. It’s thick, yellow and sweet. “It’s our Apricot’s milk,” explains Gertie, and later Tommy gets to know Apricot the cow, along with her friends Rosemary, Marjoram and Thyme.
The adorable little boy Tommy and his development – from early baby days into toddlerhood and beyond – is followed with vivid images and an engaging story. Tommy was first introduced to the public in the book Our Tommy in 1993, and the books have since gained a classic status amongst children’s books.
