Full of wit, cleverness, and playfulness, this timeless Estonian novel will satisfy the young and old alike. Musings on everyday tasks to larger matters like the nature of death, unnamable emotions, and the pains and joys of adolescence. This is a must read for anyone interested in Estonia, and since this is one of the most, if not the most well known Estonian novel, you are bound to find a translation in your language.

Terve aeg seda lugedes oli lollakas muie suul, välja arvatud muidugi Arno sügavate probleemide puhul.
Sally Tarbox
Most enjoyable Estonian children's book of 1912, set in a village school. The adventures focus on sensitive Arno, and his classmates, notably Toots with his endless escapades and Teele, a girl on whom Arno becomes increasingly fond... The kindly schoolmaster, the unpleasant churchwarden and the vodka-swilling sexton all come into the narrative, as do the pupils of a neighbouring school for the sons of German squires...
During the year that the story covers, we see the children grow up somewhat. T

Classics of Estonian literature. They read it in school. That was when I read the book, also seen the films. A must read to all Estonians.
