Polka for Igor

Polka for Igor
Book design Franziska Walther

Ages 5+

Igor is a special dog. If you take the time to listen to old polka records with him you will be rewarded with stories from his past. For Igor was a hero in Poland at that time. Little Ola knows this. As soon as the needle begins scratching the record, Igor’s blood begins to surge through his veins.

And then, sitting in a wingback chair, the two of them travel through a story of casseroles and sauerkraut, tightrope dancers as tender as turkey schnitzels, Russian recorder players, Bengal tigers and sheep smelling of cuckoo flowers – accompanied by the sound of an accordion and a crackling open fire.
