Teddy Bruno’s Winter (Series)

Gunilla Ingves

Author Gunilla Ingves truly knows her subject. In the Swedish countryside where she lives, she does meticulous research for her books about Teddy Bruno. As she spends a great deal of her time outdoors she dedicates herself to studying the surroundings, taking notes of her observations and, consequently, inserting them into the universe of Teddy Bruno. The result is a tender portrayal of the particularities of each season and how they change, the wonders of nature and animal life – big and small alike. The Teddy Bruno series illustrates how nature provides a space for quiet reflection as well as a setting for dramatic encounters and occurrences. Gunilla Ingves’ stories offer understanding about all forms of life, helping us to view nature in a different light.

Gunilla Ingves has a unique ability to bring facts alive and make minor happenings understandable and important for both young and old readers. The facts are both informative and poetic.
