Children and Young Adults
Rune Johan Andersson
In this slightly eerie picture book Lost, Rune Johan Andersson shows us the world from a child’s perspective. Where are mum and dad? Where am I? The book is a story about getting lost in the woods and being found again. Perhaps it wasn’t so frightening in the woods after all?
Anderssons expressive and original illustrations reinforces and gives the book meaning and provides a completely unique style. This is an innovative and rich book where the illustrations carry most of the meaning. Lost is a picture book about getting lost, but also about finding one’s way home. Mum and dad are gone and we are in the middle of a forest. But is it really tree trunks all around or something completely different? Perhaps it’s not so scary after all.
