I must confess that I bought Zoya Vassileva’s book “The Merry Barefoot Band”(„Весела чета с босите крачета“) mostly from professional interest (it was illustrated by Yana Levieva). Something in the cover was bothering me – it was so different from all the rest. Since we started reading the poems, I am charmed by this little book. Sometimes I have to read certain things twice, explain a word or two, peruse the pictures even more carefully and go back to the poems – but everything is so entertaining and engaging.
A REALLY, REALLY wonderful Bulgarian children’s book!
