Children And Young Adults
Picture Book

Mette Karlsvik


Aude is a young girl who comes to an island – an overgrown, untouched and mystical landscape. Here she meets the deer, a big and powerful animal. They get to know each other, and she gets to ride through the woods on the deer’s back. The deer is bounding too fast, and when the accident happens, the deer knows that the child is the precious and vulnerable one. Aude, who is on the verge between childhood and adulthood, discovers things about life and nature. This is a picture book for elder children and young adults.

Illustrated by Katrin Berge.

“It is a consistently beautiful book, both in text and illustrations. It is rare that the author and the illustrator are hitting the tone in each other as strongly as here. If one ever can say that everything is perfect, this is a good example. … So far, this year’s most beautiful picture book.”
