Everything was so easy before. Pim liked going to school. The days were bright and full of joy. But suddenly things are no longer okay. Pim doesn't want to go to school. Neither Pim nor his Mom know why. It gets harder every day, and Pim moves further and further away from what's bright and easy. Pim digs and digs. Something has to be done. But is Pim himself anymore?
Badger Days is a new picture book from Gro Dahle about refusing to go to school, and what can happen when you start digging.
Gro Dahle (b. 1962) writes for both children and adults. As a children's author she is known for her poetic books on themes that are often given little attention. Her poetry collections Riddles of Rain and A Hundred Thousand Hours have solid places in the canon of modern Norwegian poetry. She has also published novels and short stories.
