Leo is seven years old, and what Leo wants more than anything else is an uncle! A cool, funny uncle just like Even and Ivar’s. Then they could do cool things like going fishing or to the circus.
But Leo only has Mum, Grandma and Arne, Grandma’s new boyfriend. Arne makes very good pizza. Grandma gets fatter every day. One day Grandma has some news – Leo’s finally getting an uncle!
Leo får en liten onkel is a charming, moderately rude story about how not all uncles are as cool or grown up as we might want them to be.
‘The characters are funny and easy to recognise in the everyday situations depicted. The text is short, easy to read, funny, and I imagine that it is also a treat for seven-year-olds. That said, I would not hesitate to read this book to smaller children.’
