When Doris moves and leaves a full box of stuffed animals, her parents give them to her cousins. Doris’s toys end up in a house of horrorwhere they become stuffed beasts! A warmhearted and funny children’s book, it shows unforgettable “stuffed” characters for which we cheer from beginning to end.


“Stuffed Animals” is a novel intended primarily for children, although it will certainly appeal to many adults. From the literary point of view, the novel belongs to the horror genre, and speaks of a group of stuffed animals that, with the opportunity of changing their owners, must face a completely new and potentially dangerous situation. While animals struggle for survival and their rights, we observe and learn about human values such as tolerance, acceptance and the right to diversity. Accordingly, the book also contains LGBTQ+ characters – a new theme in children’s books in Croatia.
