Mr. Balder’s Secret

Jakob Wegelius, illustrated by Jakob Wegelius

Mr. Balder lives a happy life on his estate. Everything would be perfect if it weren’t for the business of mowing the grass on Thursdays. It’s sweaty and dirty work – not Mr. Balder’s style at all. But then he sees an advertisement offering to hire out sheep to keep the grass down. He soon places an order and a week later ten first-rate sheep move in. However, it doesn’t turn out quite like Mr. Balder had expected – it’s better. But the neighbouring farmer is less than pleased and raises the voltage in the electric fence … A long-awaited new edition of this 1995 gem!
