Jacob and the Dog

Jakob og hunden

Every once in a while a children’s book pops up that succeeds in telling a completely new story, while simultaneously recalling memories of the great classics of children’s literature. Jacob and the Dog is such a book.

The story of Jacob who is mourning the loss of his dog, but in the end finds a new friend, is moving, endearing and exciting, and rendered in a warm and forthright language that is perfectly suited for reading out loud.

Asbjørn Tønnesen is responsible for the beautiful illustrations.
