Estonian kids explain the world: these are stories created by the writer with the help of his three children, capturing the surprising logic of children’s imagination and some pretty unexpected ideas of how the world is set up.

The characters of the short and captivating stories, easy enough for children to read on their own, include an arm chair and somersaults; God; drowned people, Jurītis the tramp, as well as lots of other creatures, seen and unseen, which preoccupy a child’s mind.

Witty illustrations to the book, very popular in Estonia, were created by the Estonian artist Alvar Jaakson.
