Soda Pop is a hilarious Swedish classic, with fresh new illustrations from a leading young artist.
Written by Barbro Lindgren and illustrated by Lisen Adbåge
Translated by Sarah Death
Soda Pop is an anarchic story full of playful nonsense in which the usual rules and prejudices do not exist.
Soda Pop loves bright orange clothes and wears a tea cozy on his head. He has brought up his son Mazarin on sweet buns and love. Grandfather Dartanyong emerges from his woodshed every morning with a new identity, and Great-grandfather has moved into a tree, eats birdseed, and thinks he is a cuckoo.
Theirs is a carefree life, untroubled by social norms. In this tolerant world anything can happen—is the garage suddenly full of tigers?
We are not surprised.
Soda Pop is a glorious mix of the absurdity of Spike Milligan with the boldness of Pippi Longstocking.
