I Am Allan’s Babysitter

Johanna von Horn & Charlotte Ramel

Allan’s babysitter, that’s me.
I am five years and Allan is six – months, that is. Allan lives with his moms in the same apartment building as me, but I live on the fifth floor and Allan lives on the first.

There are many books about getting a sibling, but not so many about not getting one. In this picture book, the protagonist has solved his desire for a sibling in a very concrete way – by borrowing the neighbors’ cute baby!

Johanna von Horn has previously written non-fiction books for children. With I Am Allan’s Babysitter she debuts as a picture book author. Charlotte Ramel is one of Sweden’s most beloved illustrators. Her well-recognizable illustrations reinforce both the humor and the seriousness of this fun picture book gem.
