Barbiedoll Nils and the Gun Problem

It is Nils’s birthday! And he knows just what he wants for his birthday. Why, the nicest Barbie doll in the world, of course!

But why does dad make shooting sounds when they go to the toy store? Wasn’t the whole idea to get Nils what he wanted? And why does he grow as stiff as a flagpole when he opens his mouth to say what he wants?

Illustrated by Mari Kanstad Johnsen.
