In this new book, three friends – a Swedish horse, a German lobster and a Russian crow – decide to build a house together to live with their whole families. However, it turns out that they have a very different idea of the perfect house. But it doesn’t mean that they can’t make a shared house in which everybody would live separately in an environment that’s best for them, and then all meet up on the coast of the same river.  

The story helps children develop an idea of a co–existence and collaboration in nature and society alike, while stressing the importance of getting to know oneself and understanding your own needs. The picturesque, lively illustrations help to create a visual story about the differences and harmony in the world.
