Everywhere and Nowhere

Oskar Kroon

“Do you ever play with anyone but Nikolaj these days?” says mother.
“Yes” says Sillen.

But that isn’t true, she just plays with Nikolaj all the time. Sillen and Nikolaj are best friends, even though Nikolaj doesn’t believe in cozy Friday nights, only in quantum physics! And even though Nikolaj seems to think that Sillen agrees on everything he says and comes up with,
in fact she doesn’t. She has doubts and doubts are good to have, because there is so much that is strange in this world. Where did Nikolaj’s dad go when he passed away? How is grandma going to fit in heaven when it is already full of dead badgers? And how can you ever be friends with someone who says that the only things you have in your brain are sawdust and some snot?

Everywhere and Nowhere is a story about very remarkable and normal things like cozy Friday nights, lice and complicated friendships. And about a cat that seems to be able to be dead and alive at the same time.

With black and white illustrations by ALMA candidate Joanna Hellgren.

“Oskar Kroon’s new book, Everywhere and Nowhere, has a richer language and humorous elements reminiscent of Ulf Stark and Frida Nilsson (…) This is really good!” BTJ
