The story is about a boy who is distracted from his routine activities by various creatures he has invented, that are each a combination of two animals.
The story is very sweet, and the illustrations are amazing. I really love the creatures, the colours, the compositions... everything!
I don't think there is an English version yet, as it's quite a new book, but I'm sure there will be. In the meantime you can see all the illustrations from the book (and many others) on Orit Bergman's website here
