The Tale of the Little Old Man

Barbro Lindgren & Eva Eriksson

The little old man is a very lonely old man who dearly wants a friend, but who no one cares about – or even sees. One day a dog comes by, and the dog becomes his friend. The little old man is so happy. Until a little girl comes along and the dog gives his attention to the girl instead. Will the little old man become lonely again?
The Tale of the Little Old Man is a wonderful book, sad but beautiful, about loneliness and low self-esteem. But above all, it is a story about the joy and warmth of friendship. Because it ends happily, it does.
