Strange AnimalsLotta Olsson, illustrated by Maria Nilsson Thore
“Are you strange?
This is how the giant anteater invites people to the first strange animal competition.
Send in your application by Friday.”
Which is the strangest animal? The Giant Anteater thinks maybe he is the strangest in the world. Well anyway the Dormouse thinks he’s really strange. But to make sure, the anteater arranges a competition which the animals themselves can enter and tell everyone just why they are the strangest.
It soon turns out that a whole lot of quite ordinary animals can be very strange too. And how do you choose a winner when all the competitors are totally strange?
A humorous and easy-to-read story to read for yourself or with the whole family. Written by one of Sweden’s foremost wordsmiths, Lotta Olsson. Beautiful and clever coloured illustrations by Maria Thore Nilsson.
