Ovetenskapliga studier: Nio bevis för saker som förmodligen aldrig har hänt Unscientific Studies: nine pieces of evidence for things that likely haven't happened
Unscientific Studies: nine pieces of evidence for things that likely haven’t happened is a collection of hilarious, brutal, surprising and thought-provoking short stories that take the reader for a true literary roller-coaster ride. In these stories, dads’ fingers may turn into delicious hotdogs, saffron buns might come alive and clouds can be tamed into pets. The nine featured short stories are each a piece of evidence for something that likely hasn’t happened…only one can’t really know for sure.
Scintillating with imagination and magnificent eccentrics, this book, written by Emma Karinsdotter and illustrated by Marcus-Gunnar Petterson, expands the horizons for what children’s literature can contain and demonstrates just how spectacularly text and image can play together.
“Mad hilarity in absurdist short story collection. /…/ Emma Karinsdotter and Marcus-Gunnar Pettersson have created an exceptionally bold collection of short stories. This is a collection unlike anything other: a wildly hilarious compilation of stories for the beginner reader but with surprising twists and turn of events that is certainly not part of everyday life. /…/ And the illustrations! Everyone who’s familiar with illustrator Marcus-Gunnar Pettersson knows he’s made for this kind of imagery, where he gets to work across his entire range. Unscientific Studies is a perfectly composed selection of short stories. /…/ Afterwards you won’t look upon the world in quite the same way, as is a tell-tale sign of a genuinely great book.”
“With imagination, humour and some horror the nine pieces of “evidence” are put forward. /…/ [Petterson’s] vibrant, ingenious and entertaining imagery enhances the atmosphere of the book and also changes in character in the various tales. The book is well-suited for reading out loud and discussions around true and false. Unscientific Studies is a short story collection for the younger readers that will stimulate both laughter and deeper questions alike.”
“As per usual, brilliant illustrations by Marcus-Gunnar – I think this simply has got to be read in order to understand this book’s twisted greatness.”
“What an experience [Unscientific Studies] was! I love this book! Thank you for the quirkiest, funniest, saddest, most thought-provoking, most imaginative, most playful and most surprising book I have read in a long, long time!”
