Contemplate a hedgehog’s bristles, a crab’s bad mood, a pea who believes it was meant to be a butterfly, and other wonderful images in Inger Hagerup’s poems. First published in Norway in 1961, this wonderfully quirky collection is now available in English. This one is fun to read aloud!
Generations of Norwegian children have grown up reading and reciting poems by Inger Hagerup (1905-1985). Alive with sound, shape, and color, the combination of handwritten, informal verse and Paul René Gauguin’s avant garde illustrations has proven to be an irresistible and endlessly delightful combination for children and adults a like.
