Kaka ja kevad by Andrus Kivirähk
Kaka ja kevad - Andrus Kivirähk,Heiki Ernits

A bit weird but really funny stories. I read some of these several times. My favourites were a story about the spoon who wants to become  a pirate and the other story about a cat who tries Santa's job.

And the illustrations were gorgeous. Heiki Ernits is definitely a very talented artist. There were pages I spent more time admiring the illustration than reading the story.

Kriminaalne suvevaheaeg by Ilmar Tomusk
Kriminaalne suvevaheaeg - Ilmar Tomusk,Hillar Mets

Kribu and Krabu hope to have a great summer holiday, but then their father gets into trouble and young detectives have to solve another case. Fortunately, Paul arrives from Scotland to spend his summer in Estonia and agrees to help the kids. Trying to catch the criminals Kribu and Krabu even have to travel to Russia.

 

Great mystery for children. I admire how the author has masterfully weaved together a lot of useful information and an exciting story line. In this book Ilmar Tomusk talked about famous detectives, e-bills, and what to do when you lose your ID card, but it never felt like information dumping. 

Even the fairy tale ending couldn't spoil the experience because I guess we all hope to get the second chance in our lives.

Tasuja by Eduard Bornhöhe
Tasuja - Eduard Bornhöhe

I read it years ago and re-read it with a student of mine. Still a good book about Estonia in the 14th century.
