Barbro Lindgren and Charlotte Ramel’s excellent picture book is about children’s play and dramatic role-playing. The game turns serious between the wolf and the hen – who are as unequal as you can get. This picture book is about our roles and the way we see ourselves, and it grows into a story with very drastic humor. A modern picture book in the spirit of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf.
In 2014 Barbro Lindgren received the ALMA, a literary prize in memory of Astrid Lindgren.
