Overview Avstikkere

Winner of the BolognaRagazzi Award 2008!

Detours (Avstikkere) is an art book and an adventure book. It is neither a typical children’s book nor a typical adult’s book, but it is suitable for children who like to look at pictures and use their imagination. There is no on-going story, but the book has five parts, each with its own story. In addition every picture is a story in itself.

Øyvind Torseter is one of Norway’s most prominent illustrators. Several of his books have won prizes.
