Overview Mulysses
Mule Boy goes to sea. And his travels go about as well as they do for many other boys on their first journey: poverty forces him on a dangerous trip with an eccentric adventurer who is searching for the eye of a sea monster. We follow Mule Boy's dangerous journey through the comic book format. We take part in the emotional gusts he undergoes – far from home, under an unpredictable captain and dealing with the strong feelings for a blind passenger that gradually start to appear.

Reviews from Mulysses

En av hans beste 19.10.2017

"Gjennom årene har Øyvind Torseter for lengst blitt Norges mest priste barnebokforfatter og illustratør. Det er ingen grunn til at det ikke skal fortsette med «Mulysses». Den er ikke bare et eventyr denne boka. Den er litt av en drøm også. Den er bare herlig."Geir Vestad, Hamar Arbeiderblad
