Continuing the previous edition (The New Year’s Piglet), the second in the series of illustrated books for children and adults by Dubravka Ugrešić puts the relationship between animals and humans back into focus in a seemingly simple yet radical way. The book addresses the stereotypical perception of adults devoid of imagination. The story is set against the backdrop of well-known locations in Zagreb and features playful Zagreb slang. As Marisol the seal enters the department store “Nama”, her presence and ability to speak human language leave everyone in shock, except for one boy.
