TIRIL - Far, far away

A fairy-tale inspired by one of Norway’s most famous painters Theodor Kittelsen. This modern fairy-tale is about courage, more specific about the courage to say “I am sorry”. But the road there can be long, so it will be good to have some good companions like Stonetroll and Branchtroll, especially if you meet sea monsters or water spirits like The Nixie.

Readers review:

“I will keep this book forever!”

Balder 4,5 years

“Now we read the book daily.”

Mum to Sverre, 4 years old

“I want to move into the princess’ castle.”

Thale, 5 years

“I was happy when Tiril could hug her mum!”

Jose 6 years
