Den långa vandringen The Long Hike

Picture books #

A girl and a boy live on each side of the sea with their best friends, Missan the cat and Rufus the dog. But Rufus is old and tired and when he dies the boy shuts himself off. On the other side of the sea the girl! and Missan set off on a long and challenging hike. But can they reach the boy before it’s too late?

The Long Hike is a picture book where the best of Swedish and Polish tale telling and artwork come together. Bestselling author Martin Widmark has with LasseMaja and Nelly Rapp consolidated his position as one of Sweden’s favorite children’s author. With The Long Hike he delivers once again an enchanting and spellbinding text for younger children and pairs up with the Polish illustrator Emilia Dziubak.
