If I Were Prime Minister

Author: Trygve Skaug

Publisher: Lantana




A joyful picture book that puts the child at the very heart of politics and social change.

With disarming frankness, a young boy gives his perspective on several things the grown-ups running the country could do differently. His recommendations are both playful and profound. How much happier would we be if all the adults went to nursery once a month to remind themselves how to play? How much safer would we be if Christmas lights were left up all year round to light everyone’s way home? This gorgeously-illustrated picture book is for all those children who dare to dream big and for all those adults who want to look on the world with fresh eyes.
