Przyjemna książka, z fajnymi obrazkami i trochę miłej i niecodziennej wiedzy dla dzieci. Fajnie tez pokazane że nie trzeba wiedzieć wszystkiego a czasami wystarczy dać komuś innemu powiedzieć jak coś można rozwiązać.

Bohaterami tej krótkiej bajki są łoś i świnka. Śledząc losy tych dwojga, doszłam do wniosku, że książka zbudowana jest na prostym schemacie, który niestety mnie nie zachwycił.

Po pierwsze, poznajemy łosia, który wciąż nie wierzy w siebie. Z różnych historii dowiadujemy się, że jest on skromny, pomocny i bezinteresowny. Po drugie, mamy do czynienia ze świnką, która chce być wszędzie tam, gdzie jeszcze jej nie było. Jest ciekawa świata i bardzo chciałaby być wolna.

Kiedy ta dwójka się poznaje, dzi

The drawings are quite cute, but what really makes it great is the rather irrelevant poop field guide.

I bought this book as a gift for my 3YO son and each time I or his father read it, I became more and more disappointed in my selection. The King 'Elk' is very unsure of his leadership skills and encounters many opportunities throughout the story to help different animals in his kingdom. Instead of finding clever ways to assist them, he pretty much leaves them to fend for themselves or solve their own problems. I am at the point now that I will probably remove this book from my son's library and ...more

This was one of the weirdest children's book reads in a while. A friend got it for her kids at IKEA and wanted my 'professional' opinion as a kindergarten teacher. Long story short, I was not impressed: the illustrations are passable, but the story is just weird, bordering on disturbing, with a side plot suddenly coming out of left field and leading to two different morals, both of which seem very misplaced in a book for small children.

For some bizarre reason, the last page consists entirely of

Son of Athos is still too young for this, but Athos liked it very much. It's a very cute and subtle story and a beautiful book, complete with forest poop identification. What more could one ask for?

Prentenboeken van Ikea, dat klinkt als een wat gewaagde combi. Maar, ondanks een wat matig verhaaltje is het resultaat best aardig. De tekeningen zijn erg geslaagd en de hoofdpersonen zijn ook als knuffel te koop. Voor 4-6 euro kun je je daar geen buil aan vallen.

I got this book as a gift. It's a really cute story about an Elk trying to figure out if he makes a good king or not.

The elk is supposed to be king, but doesn't know how. He consults many animals. This is a cute story about believing in yourself and empowering others. I read it during a trip to Ikea.
