Selma The Sheep

Last week I got the best present I could ever receive, from my dearest friend who lives in the future and upside down! It´s a little book about the secret of happiness, this key thing that anyone and everyone is looking for the entire history of humankind...

"Happiness? Let me tell you the story of Selma..." and so begins this wonderful little book titled Selma, by Jutta Bauer. Selma is a contented mama sheep who spends her days eating grass, playing with her children, exercising in the afternoon, chatting with her neighbor in the evening and then falls fast asleep. When asked what she would do if she had more time or more money she responds with her perfect day... she'd eat some grass, play with her children, exercise in the afternoon, chat with her neighbor in the evening, and then fall fast asleep.
