The Giant from the Sea

Jöns Mellgren

Isabella gently picks up the little figure. It’s hot as a freshly baked bun against her palms.
She puts her ear to its stomach. She hears a faint ticking noise from in there, and then a muffled humming sound. It sits up and blinks a couple of times in the sunlight.
Parentless Isabella and the little clay lump Oleg become friends. But Oleg is growing and when they get to the city is everyone afraid. Nobody listens to Isabella. Oleg is captured and exhibited as an animal in a cage. Isabella has to muddle on all alone among the city’s garbage.

Oleg is big and strong enough to rescue others, but who rescues Oleg unless Isabella dares to?

A poetic and topic book with creative and breathtaking visual perspectives.
