Overview Esa koster

Funny and thought-provoking picture book from award-winning children’s author Gro Dahle

Esa loves sweeping! There’s so much in the way and so much that needs to be swept away. Sand and dust and oat flakes on the floor. Drawing pins and pine needles and crusts and crumbs. Things that break, infectious illnesses, people who pull your hair, Mum who’s crying, Dad who’s shouting. Esa sweeps and sweeps to get rid of everything that’s in the way and everything that hurts her. But what happens when Esa has swept away the whole world? Won’t it be a bit too quiet?

Gro Dahle isn’t afraid of dealing with serious and difficult topics in her picture books. Esa Sweeps is illustrated by Kaia Dahle Nyhus.
