The heavily illustrated children’s book "Sølvmånen" is a dramatic story based on a Sámi tale. While herding reindeer in the mountains, a young girl is attacked by a ‘Stallo’, a greedy and fearsome giant. The Stallo abducts the girl and the reindeer herd. To survive, the girl must outsmart both the Stallo and his family. Sølvmånen was presented at “Into the Wind!” in Berlin 2016, a travelling exhibition of the Childrenʼs Book Illustrations from the Nordic Countries.
