Children and Young Adults
Nina Nordal Rønne
Bella is a pretty cut-out paper doll. She is pleased with herself and looks at the pile of leftover paper left by the scissors. Suddenly noisy and dynamic Leftover-Ella appears from the scraps. At first, Bella doesn’t like her. But after they help each other escape from the scary scissors, they become the best of friends. This is a picture book about the duality of friendship/hostility, creation/destruction and initiative/passivity.

‘An original picture book about discoveries, creativity and storytelling. … Leftover-Ella uses in a very good way the opportunities text and image have to complement each other, this is one of reason why this is a such successful debut work. … The text also has obvious poetic qualites.’barnebokkritikk.no
