This is the story of our class. It is the story of Imara, Ravi, Jayden, Katinka, Noepy, Max, Ziva, Lev, Annabelle, Meral, Wies, Ozzie and everybody else. And Ariane, of course. Did we mention that Ariane is a zebra? It’s not particularly important, if that’s what you were thinking, but at least you know. We are Miss Cato’s class.
Eleven stories, some absurd, some crazy, all of them told by children from the most ordinary class. Gideon Samson brought them together in a characteristic and playful way and the wonderful illustrations by Rotterdam-based artist Joren Joshua are the best match to his style.
