For ten years we had the privilege of living with our dog called Nina. She was all white with some spots on her head and neck. Naughty, smart and loving. My two sons took care of her with all the love in the world. What inspired me to write this story was the fact that while staying together with my sons’ friends, I was able to realize how a friendship is important throughout our entire lives.

To illustrate, I chose very soft lines and bright colors, to harmonize with the story, which has such a strong connection with nature.
