Thunder

Ulf Stark, Marcus-Gunnar Pettersson

Nine-year-old Ulf has a neighbor, a giant named Oskarsson. But to Ulf and his friend Bernt, he is only known as Thunder, because of his booming, frightening voice. He is deadly dangerous.

The serenity of summer break comes to a sudden end when Ulf and Bernt get into a fight. And Ulf’s mom gets depressed and won’t stop playing sad tunes on the piano.

A delicate, warm and humoristic depiction of an unusual friendship by one of Sweden’ most beloved children’s book authors. Marcus-Gunnar Pettersson has made the spot-on illustrations.
