One Child More or Less… what is the difference really?

Johanna Olsson & Malin Gyllensvaan

Vivi is at the playground near her new home, but no one there asks her to play. What if she’ll never have a friend? What if she will always be alone? She sits down by an old tree, it’s big and knotty and has fallen to the ground. It looks like a dragon! Suddenly Vivi hears a sound coming from the old tree.

”Good morning,” it says.
”It’s not morning,” says Vivi. ”It’s evening.”
”It is good either way,” says the dragon. ”Because I’m hungry and you look like a decent little piece.”

A picture book about fear, courage and adventure. About finding oneself and making a new friend.

Johanna Olsson has worked as a journalist, scriptwriter and playwright. She debuted with the YA novel Glömskan (The Forgotten) in 2017. This is her first picture book.
