Who’s There?Stina Wirsén, illustrated by Stina Wirsén
Stina Wirsén’s Who? characters have grown up and have children of their own. Here we meet the brilliant siblings
Mjau and Pip and their family. But who is in the family? And who isn’t? Mjau and Pip have always been siblings. Before they were born, they lay in separate eggs and were waiting to hatch. There was a third egg also waiting. But it didn’t hatch. It was empty. There was no little kid in that egg.
“Tell me again about how it was when we would hatch!” ask Mjau and Pip their parents Yellow Cat and Duva. “Tell me about Duna!” And then the parents tell about Pip and Mjau and the egg that was empty.
Once again Stina Wirsén talks about big feelings. She 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!
