A funny and whimsical picture book about an ordinary family day, told through a bird family, from 2022 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award recipient Eva Lindström.

"Wash your beaks, it's time for lunch-flies again today," says Dad.

After lunch the young birds get sent off to play-they sing, hunt mosquitos, compare leg size and poke grubs. This is how birds spend a day.

Eva Lindström reflects the familiar and the absurd in human behaviour through this funny bird family. We all recognise the family dynamics of bickering over fried mosquitos and worm pie-only the youngest is allowed to pick out the worms.

Toddlers will recognise key moments in a perfectly down to earth day-play, mealtimes, stretching boundaries and sleep. With dry observations of human family behavior that adults will enjoy, this is a picture book to make all the family laugh and to read aloud together.

Expressive faces, hilarious hairstyles, Dad's great cooking, and a sister and brother's everyday conversation combine in a heartwarming and completely individual picture book from a unique artist with an international following.

Eva Lindström was awarded the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2022 and has been nominated once for the Hans Christian Award and eight times for the August Award which she won in 2013. She is a major influence on picture and comic book artists worldwide.

Translated from the Swedish edition by Julia Marshall.
