De tre grottornas berg / The Mountain of the Three Caves (2003)

O_De tre grottornas berg SvThis is Per Olov Enquist’s first children’s book – a fantastic debut!

Cousins Mina, Moa, Marcus and Eeya get to follow along with grandpa on an expedition to the Mountain of the Three Caves. If it hadn’t been for Mina’s nightmare about the horrid crocodile, they might never have had the chance to be on Grandpa’s adventurous expedition which very nearly ended in catastrophe. But on the other hand, Mina would perhaps then still have been afraid of crocodiles and they would never have met the wolf cub Maya-Rubert if they hadn’t joined the expedition. Mind you, it was rather dreadful that Grandpa should fall down a cliff and break his leg so that Eeya had to walk through the forest all on her own in order to fetch help.

A dramatic and exciting adventure story, full of humour for adults as well as children. Stina Wirsén has illustrated and designed this pearl of a children’s book.
