Who’s Friend?

Stina Wirsén, illustrated by Stina Wirsén

A new cat arrives. The new cat is all blue and soft and Teddy wants to be next to the new cat, make friends with the new cat. But the new cats doesn’t seem to be friends only with Teddy.

Love is something very nice but jealousy isn’t. And even very small ones can have very big feelings. Stina Wirsén captures both the comic and the more difficult aspects of the situation in a masterly way, both in her text and illustrations. The book is aimed at the very young – it looks very simple, but with great finesse and accuracy Stina Wirsén finds those small nuances which make the book a powerful adventure!

The “Who?” series are “books for the very small”. The first books were published in 2005 and they are a huge success among the very small and their parents. The first book Who’s angry? was nominated for the August Prize. The series receives glowing reviews. There are 16 books about the five friends Teddy, Cat, Bird, Rabbit, and Teddy-Pig, when they are children. In 2015 the characters grow up and now you can read about their children.
