Overview Livet fra A til Å

A unique and different book of facts that looks at what it means to live, from A to Z!

Biologist and author Dag O. Hessen accompanies young readers through the big and small problems that everyone encounters sooner or later. With sharp powers of observation, humor and wit, the author lets loose on topics such as ethics, sex, hate, love, death and dreams.Livet fra A til Å is food for thought and helps give direction to the complexity of living, and illustrator Eivind Gulliksen was given free rein to explore the same topics, and the result is a thought-provoking commentary on the text.

Livet fra A til Å is the perfect First Holy Communian gift, but also an ideal textbook, a book to flick through and a book with which to grow up.

Boktips for sommerferien

"Oppslagsordene er alt fra forelskelse, empati, musikk, krig og neandertalere. Utvalget er interessant og passer perfekt for kunnskapstørst ungdom, eller kanskje som en inspirasjon til å bli interessert i det teoretiske. [...] verdt en lesestund eller flere."Elin Solvang, Aftenposten
