I'm Not a Slowpoke.
This is another successful book for children from Nina Dashevskaya, a famous author of "About Music" and "Willy". In 2015 "I Am Not a Slowpoke" won an award in Kniguru, Russia's largest children's literature contest.
It presents a story of 13-year old boy named Ignat being at odds with the surrounding world.
Normally a person runs so quickly when running late for a train. But for Ignat it is his usual speed. Hi likes roller-skating and riding his scooter most of all, because this way he can feel the connection with the world much better. And the world around is so interesting: the people, the city, music and books... everything! Ignat has many ideas about the world but he doesn't like sharing them with anyone - who can keep up with him? Everyone likes Ignat though. And once he realises it. Weird, isn't it? And apparently there are quite a few things that he is "slow" to understand. For example, he has a real friend. Quite a few good friends actually. Some people around him would like to devote their lives to helping others...
That's fine, Ignat isn't a slowpoke, he'll get it too... Indeed, sometimes even a scooter master needs to have some rest.
The book is recommended for children aged 12 and above.
