The Forest Huldra

Annalena Hedman & Sofia Falkenhem

Hannes and Emil are out in the woods when they are in for a big surprise. In a clearing, they meet one of the most famous football players of all time: Herman Manieri. Or rather the most infamous, after the World Cup final when he went blank and made an own goal. Now he’s built a shed in the woods, where he is hiding from the media and disappointed fans. Soon the entire town is engaged in Herman’s secret. Everyone helps him out.

But something is keeping Herman awake at night, something singing in the woods. Maybe old lady Eivor is right when she says that magic happens where two waters meet. And when there’s a double rainbow that go down in the woods just where the stream meets the river, Hannes, Emil and Herman decide to see if it’s true.

A delightfully wild tale for 6-9 year olds, full of wacky characters and magic!
