children’s book by Bolatta Silis-Høegh
Aima can’t wait to grow up and she spends a lot of time imagining what she will become. Maybe a diver, or a good berry picker, a baker or an owner of a nail parlour for dogs. Or maybe she doesn’t want to be Aima at all but rather Axel Thomsen. Then she can pee standing up and play soccer all day long. She has a vivid imagination and a quite pronounced temper. In the end, though, she finds out that being small also has its perks.
