This is the world through the eyes of Marta, a little girl growing up near a big city beside the sea. It is a world of bugs that talk and bath bubbles that whisper, airplanes that wave and monster vacuum cleaners. Most of all, it is a world of questions.
Estonian best selling author Epp Petrone originally crafted this collection of personal stories as a gift for her daughter’s birthday. Each tale springs from everyday life but is full of childlike whimsy.
Complemented by beautiful illustrations by artist Piia Maiste, it has since become a popular favorite for bedtime reads for girls and boys alike.
