Lilla Sticka i landet Lycka Little Stick in Happyland

Picture books #

One night when Daniel is going to bed, Aunt Julia tell s him a fantastic story. When she was a small and rather unhappy little girl who missed her brother, she happened to run her sledge into a tree and down into a long tunnel made of ice, landing with a bump in Happyland. Here she met some fantastic creatures including Mr. Jacobi – a beetle wearing tails and a bow tie who calls her Little Stick and greedy Crabben who collects pearls. She also meets her brother again and saves him.

Bestselling author Martin Widmark has with LasseMaja and Nelly Rapp consolidated his position as one of Sweden’s favorite children’s author. With Little Stick in Happyland he delivers once again an enchanting and spellbinding text for younger children and pairs up with the Polish illustrator Emilia Dziubak.

Little Stick in Happyland is Emilia and Martin Widmark’s first book together.
