Translated from the Norwegian by Becky L. Crook
A long line of people stretches through the pages of this book.
The first page starts with the last person in line. Some of these are daydreaming. Some are anxious. Some try to sneak down the line; others read a book or play an instrument. Some strike up conversations with each other. They are all waiting for one thing—but what is it?
Written and illustrated by Kristin Roskifte, this children’s picture book is filled with quirky, offbeat drawings that will appeal to children and adults alike.
“[A] quirky tale from Norway about a long queue for something special...Perfect for a bedtime or afternoon read with young people.”
—Akshita Nanda, The Sunday Times
“Get In Line! is one of the quirkiest books I’ve ever read. 5/5.”
