Winner of the Festilij Award for Best Picture Book 2023
Mika loves Sundays. It’s the day to draw, read, play with Mittens (the cat)... Mika also loves going into the garden and chasing birds and insects, but today a surprise will arrive. In the middle of the garden, Mika will come across... a box!
Whose is it? Where does it come from? But most importantly, what’s inside?
Mika and Mittens will imagine all kinds of explanations for the origins of the box... and, almost without noticing, they will get to spend the most adventurous afternoon of their lives!
“The jury valued ‘the freshness and simplicity of the picture book, as well as its colourful illustrations, to talk about topics so present in children’s lives such as imagination, curiosity, game...’. They also highlighted the special way in which it interacts with the reader, bringing them, through the final surprise, inside the story itself.” —Festilij Awards, 2023
