A great conclusion of the Imperial Radch trilogy. A space opera with agender AI protagonist – what could be more fun? Also, this trilogy has the best translator characters. ;)
Kissataksi (Cat Taxi)
A Finnish children's book about a boy who helps cats find a handyman for their lonely owner.
“Puut tuntuivat joskus melkein kuin kavereilta. Juho ajatteli olevansa onnenpoika. Hänellä oli ihmiskavereita, eläinkavereita ja kasvikavereita. Ja herkullisia voileipiä.”
→ “Sometimes the trees seemed almost like friends. Juho thought he was a lucky boy. He had human friends, animal friends and plant friends. And delicious sandwiches.”
Jess the Lonely Puppy
This was such a cute little story! A girl defeats her fear of dogs and finds a friend in a puppy.
