"Hard to be kind.
The stories of things, people and animals"
The book is written by an internationally acclaimed modern Russian novelist Lyudmila Ulitskaya and illustrated by Polina Kalashnikova.

The book is on the top list of children's literature Non Fiction fair 2022.

The illustrations are the finalists of Bologna Children Book Fai 2023.

Lyudmila Ulitskaya has written these stories for her children.
After many years her grandchildren read them too.
They learned about the old tram, which dreams of the sea;
the Vegetarian Spider, who prefers strawberries to flies;
the Tadpole, who becomes a Frog, but does not forget old friends.
These “fairy tales” teach the youngest readers not to be afraid to dream and not to depend on prejudices. The adults will be reminded that it’s actually not hard to be kind, no matter what happens around.
