Mirabelle and Astrakan
Mirabelle and AstrakanAnnika Thor, illustrated by Maria Jönsson
Two children are waiting for Someone at a playground. But who is that Someone? Could they actually be waiting for each other?
With playful references to Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot”, this is a story about how you need to understand yourself to be able to understand others. Astrakan and Mirabelle are fighting over a swing, but what goes on under the surface? Who is weak and who is strong? Maybe everything is not as it seems at first sight?
