The Tale of the Tiny Man
by Barbro Lindgren, Eva Eriksson (Illustrator)
A lonely little man wishes for a friend, and befriends a stray dog. The two form a close bond, but the tiny man worries that the dog will leave him.
This is such an emotional story! The tiny man’s loneliness and sadness are very strong in the beginning. But his joy and delight when he makes friends is just as powerful at the end of the book. I love the quaint writing style and the way that the story brings little details to the forefront. The tiny man stops to notice the flowers blooming and stars shining, and each detail of life has a true meaning.
The illustrations are so beautiful! I love the soft art style and the attractive scenes on each page. The facial expressions and body language of the tiny man bring so much emotion into the story.
