Stories is the third picture book that Dane Kim Fupz Aakeson and Norwegian Stian Hole have created together. Three masterpieces, three beautiful and moving books to touch the hearts of children and adults alike.
I open the door, and there stands Grandma.
‘Grandma?’ I ask. ‘Did you run away from the nursing home?’
‘I’m thirsty,’ Grandma says, so I pour some ice water, and we sit out in the sun.
Then I say, ‘Once upon a time’.
She smiles. She nods. She says, ‘Yes, once upon a time’.
But that’s all she says, a smile on her lips.
I say, ‘A palace?’
Grandma is getting old. She can’t drive a car anymore, or even ride a bike. In the end, she’s not very good at remembering, either—or living in her big house all alone. But she’s still good at telling stories.
A beautiful picture book about how stories and memories bring grandchildren and grandparents together.
