Author(s): Ulf Nilsson
One day at school I learned to tell the time. At three o'clock Dad usually came to get me. But he wasn't outside. Why hadn't he come. What had happened? An extraordinarily warm and funny book about a big brother's courage and inventiveness.
Translated from the Swedish, this is another delightful title from Gecko Press, which sources the best of Europe's picture books and publishes them for the New Zealand market.
