Meet Minutka, a lovable, playful and special dog who is bilngual: she is fluent in English and Polish! Minutka even dreams in both languages! She shows us how much fun it is to be in a faimly, to play around the house and garden and with friends, and to be bilingual.
With beautifully expressive, witty illustrations and a highly contemporary design, Minutka delights readers of all ages. Anyone who has ever known or loved a pet will instantly recognize and laugh at what Minutka does: how she shakes paw, snatches socks, runs in circles . . . Minutka is for everyone: you don't need to be a child or bilingual to be entertained and entranced by this lovable dog!
From The Critics:
Minutka dances about the gray pages... her statements don't progress from simple to difficult, or fall into categories like 'food' or 'greetings.' She's just celebrating a life lived in two languages. . . Some bilingual books have literary ambitions or social messages; this one just has fun.
Both the text and illustrations depict the frenetic, easily side-tracked nature of a young puppy.
Tiny, but charmingly expressive illustrations add an abundance of humour and capture the pleasure of being bilingual. This book is a gem.
