Emre’s Manual in the Art of Making Friends (…and enemies)

Siri Spont & Jonna Björnstjerna

Emre is a guy who doesn’t really dare to speak up and take up any space, and who wishes he was braver. And it can get a bit lonely sometimes. The fact that his younger brother Izzet is friends with the whole world doesn’t really help either. Emre tries to give himself some advice and writes it all down in his very own manual on the art of making friends. One day a new guy starts in Emre’s class. Ömer is his name, he takes up room and is fearless. Sometimes a little too much room, so that it gets him in trouble. But what would happen if Emre and Ömer became friends…?

Everyday life in middle grade school with much to identify with. With a lot of humor, a playful layout and many illustrations, this book will tickle even the most reluctant readers!

“…when children come and ask for books that "are about kids that exist for real" – give them this book! And when they ask for something that is “fun to read!”, recommend this book! And also when someone asks for books "like the wimpy kid books”, because Emre’s manuals have handwritten fonts and many illustrations, just like them, but are easier to read. So in short, is this book really to be recommended at any time? To anyone? Even for reading aloud? Yep! Just get it!” – Carolina Landin blogg
