A poem book for the younger school-age children. The cycle of black-and-white drawings by the animation director Edmunds Jansons is the story of the everyday life of suburban boys as seen in a dream by the author: the poet wrote all of the poems in a single night!

It is about the everyday life of boys, featuring all of its timeless elements like bicycles, swimming, throwing stones at all the right and wrong targets, the winter joy of toboggan riding. Lemonade is an integral part of these exciting events, in summer and winter alike.

Some other realistic elements of the drawings serve to specify the time when these events are taking place: that’s ‘Dad’s childhood’, a story for today’s little boy about what it was like when his father was only a boy.
