What is Stumpy Thinking?

George Johansson & Anna-Clara Tidholm

When Stumpy is at granddad’s place he often gets potato pancakes with jam and bacon to eat. Right now granddad’s going to drive him home, but he can’t find the car keys. Stumpy is standing in his overall, waiting. Granddad is searching for the keys for a very long time. But Stumpy likes waiting, because then he can think about many things. Like cars, dinosaurs and outer space. But mostly he thinks about granddad, and how lonely he must feel when Stumpy isn’t there.

A modern classic with much warmth and humor.
