Little Andrei remember’s living in his mother, in his house right under her heart. Then he was born, and things were not so perfect, and then one day his mama was gone. At an orphanage he meets Vova, who reminds him of the dog in his private world, and together they wander out into the streets of St. Petersburg, looking for Andrei’s mother. Barbro Lindgren’s dreamlike story for readers 5 to 9 was inspired in part by the Russian author and linguist Korney Chukovsy’s work on children’s play and their imagination. Illustrated with gentle watercolors, reminiscent at times of Maurice Sendak’s older work, the book has a mysterious, haunting atmosphere, and can be interpreted in different and profound ways.
