All Work, or What?!

Mornings are hectic in the family and on the streets because everyone has to get going. Work calls! But what does “going to work” really mean? Some occupations are easy to see: people marvel at the crane operator, working at dizzy heights, and the noisy garbage collector in any case. But what does one do all day in an office? Is work fun? Is begging the work of a beggar? Do only adults work and is there extra money to be earned in certain important jobs? Inspired by children’s questions, Mieke Scheier casts a multi-perspective look at Work. Her tiny pictures and concise texts are curiously questioning, amazingly blunt and delightfully humorous. A working pleasure for the whole family.
