This was just so weird, and not in a good way (for me anyway). I'd love to hear from anyone who's tried this book with an actual child. Originally written and illustrated in 1952, in Finland, it's very possible that I'm just missing something. I did like the cut-out windows in the illustrations, but otherwise I found them unappealing and busy, and the text (perhaps due to translations difficulties!) is an awkward rhyme that is really hard to read aloud.

Susan I had this book as a child and I loved it. I always remembered it and was overjoyed to find it again many years later and now appreciate it as an adult. The illustrations and ingenious cutouts are fabulous
