The story about a dark feeling in the cricket’s head is a part of books by Dutch author Toon Tellegen. Stories talk about life of forest animals and author also wrote them in the forest. The animals offer the reader incredibly beautiful, wise, unpretentious and intelligent reflections about the meaning of life that come from their own special circumstances and mental states. Cricket is facing depression, Hedgehog struggles with the fear of visitors, Elephant has unstoppable desire of climbing the trees, Squirrel is so busy with everyone around her, she forgets about her own needs, omniscient Ant wonders about the meaning and Firefly just wants to shine once.

Clever and lucid Tellegen has – already decades ago when the stories were written – noticed that the world is turning in very strange direction, and a dark cloud descended above us all in the last year and a half. Masquerading it as a young adult literary form, Tellegen wrote philosophical texts for adults. And children. Because we all understand the message of these stories, each in his own way.
