Otto Goes North
A cosy story about friendship, travel and knitting.
Translated by Julia Marshall
Releasing in September
Far up in the north is a blueberry-blue house with a grass roof, where Lisa and Nils live. One day a tourist arrives: Otto has cycled for months, maybe years, to visit his friends.
Otto wants to do a spectacular painting of the northern lights to remember his visit, but he is from a hot country and it is very cold here. He can’t paint for shivering so hard.
Lisa and Nils are surprised—Otto has a fur coat just like them! They didn’t know there was a difference between fur and fur.
His friends decide to knit him a jumper.
