“A story in pictures that will make
the reader hold his breath”
DAGBLADET
When Jostein
Gaarder wrote Sophie’s
World in 1991, he believed
that a novel on the history
of philosophy would
appeal only to a specialist
readership. Four years
later the book was the
most sold novel in the
world.
To date Sophie’s World has
been translated into 60
languages and has sold
over 40 million copies.
An unknown number of
pirate editions also exist.
Jostein Gaarder’s other
works such as The
Christmas Mystery,
Solitaire Mystery, Vita
Brevis and The Orange Girl,
are also hugely popular
and have been published
in many countries.
Gaarder continues to
write books that inspire
readers all over the world
to think and ask questions
about ourselves, our place
in history, and the world
around us.

“Where does the world come from?
Has anything always been here?
Or has everything come out of nothing?
Can anything come out of nothing?”
Questions Asked (2012) is a picture book with
fundamental philosophical questions, posed
in a way only Jostein Gaarder is capable of.
The illustrator, Akin Duzakin, has made an
independent and beautiful picture narrative that
underscores the existential aspect of Gaarder’s
philosophical questions.

We meet young Anna today and her granddaughter Nova in 2082.
Anna has always had a vivid fantasy, but her
dreams and visions seem to come to her from
another reality, or perhaps from a different
time? In Anna’s dreams she is her own
granddaughter, Nova.
In the year 2082, Earth has lost much of its
glamour. The ocean has risen, major ecosystems
are destroyed, and thousands of plant and
animal species are gone. Is there anything Anna
and Nova can do to save the world?

First published: 2001
Genre: Young adult
Jonas Nilsen is counting down the days until his
mom returns. His mother has been in prison
since he was eight. He is fourteen now. During
these years, Jonas has covered up the truth,
made up stories and created his own reality.
Now she is finished serving her sentence, and
Jonas knows he has to tell her the truth. That
he is not popular, that he is not in the student
council, that school is going badly and that his
girlfriend Bobby does not really exist.
Winner of the 2008 Norwegian Ministry of
Culture children’s book award.
Gerd is the younger of two sisters and the black
sheep in the family. When a new girl comes
to live nearby, Gerd feels that her relationship
with her friend Kajsa is threatened. The two
compete for the new girl’s friendship in a tussle
that hardly brings out the best in them.
The Dandelion Song is a heart-rending and
compulsively readable story of friendship,
vulnerability and betrayal.

literary gunshot”
“Superbly told from
beginning to end.”

Even grows up in Tønsberg with his mother

boats return home and Even doesn’t spot his
father on deck, he realises that something is
wrong. And when he later discovers his father’s

things start happening. Even understands that
the whale ear has something to do with his
father’s death - but what?
Due to an explosion, a group of teenagers are
trapped in the tunnel between two subway
stations. Suddenly the two girls and three
boys have to relate to one another - as well as
the wounded and dead co-passengers - in a
whole new way. They have to try to escape the
caved-in tunnel, but are they walking towards
life or death? They find themselves in a sort of
purgatory unbound by laws of nature, and time
is of the essence. They all have their own stories
and conflicts, and the drama they are now part
of, along with the relationships that emerge,
brings new light to their lives.
This is a powerful tale of staring death and
terror directly in the face.

Original Title: Alvin Pang
Books in series: 4

Genre: Picture book
Illustrator: Stig Saxegaard
Alvin Pang lives in a shut-down fire department
with his mother, his little sister Elvira and his
stepdad, Freddy. He has many plans and big
dreams, but they don’t always work out the way
he imagined they would.
The latest book in the series is Alvin Pang Runs
Away.
Kindergarten is closed and Alvin Pang thinks
that he can do exactly what he wants since he is
going to be home alone with Elvira and Freddy.
But Freddy knows how to set limits, and Alvin
gets angry. He might as well run away and
kidnap his little sister Elvira while he’s at it. But
maybe that isn’t really such a good idea after all.
“The Alvin Pang-books are
fresh and fun stories for
small children.”

THE SUMMER DAD TURNED GAY
Original title: Den sommeren pappa ble homo
First published: 2012
Genre: Young Adult
Arvidsjaur has a name he’d rather be kept a
secret, a dog he’d like to have locked up and
a dad who’s been acting strange ever since
mom ran away with her a-little-too-personal
trainer… As if that wasn’t enough; this year
he and his dad are spending their summer
vacation in an old, derelict caravan in the
middle of nowhere. That’s where he meets
Indiane. She has a father who insists on
walking around bare-chested, and who all
too often drops by to visit Arvidsjaur’s dad.
A lot of things go wrong this summer. And
the weather isn’t that great either…

Genre: Middle Grade
However, it turns out that helping the animals is
far more difficult than they imagined – suddenly
they are in the middle of a dangerous situation.
They have to trust each other, or risk losing
everything.
It’s winter and the wind is making a lot of scary
sounds. The rabbit tries to calm her nerves by
eating a carrot, which usually helps. It doesn’t
work this time, so she goes to visit the horse.
The horse is scared of the shadows and goes to
visit the hen. The hen is also afraid, and together
they go to visit the magpie. The magpie can’t
fly in the strong wind, so together they all go
to visit the pig. But the pig doesn’t understand
what all the fuss is about. He simply wants to
sleep.
In the first book, Milla and the Midnight
Mystery, we get to know Milla and her best
friends who have one thing in common: They
are totally addicted to anything to do with
horses. One day they ride past a farm with
neglected horses. They have to do something!
So far there are six books in the series about
Milla. All of them jam-packed with horses,
mysteries, boys and adventures.

In Dirty Snow and From Oslo to Lahore we meet
four girlfriends who are stuck between two

threatened with death if she reveals the truth.
The girls understand that something must be
done, especially since one of the other girls has
been abused by the same boy.
The second book is a freestanding sequel to
Dirty Snow. One of the four girls, Ambar, is
happily married to her Omar in Lahore in
Pakistan. But while the happy couple is on
holiday in Dubai, Omar is brutally attacked
and killed. At first Ambar is suspected of
being behind the attack, but the police
eventually realise that something else must
have happened. Is it a petty robbery, or is there
something bigger behind this? What has Omar
really been up to?
Maria’s world collapses when her little brother
dies of cancer. When her mother falls ill and
withdraws into herself, Maria goes to spend
her summer holiday with her grandparents.
