The Robberson Family and the Birthday Coup

Anders Sparring & Per Gustavsson

The Robberson family cannot help but take things that are not theirs. Besides Ture, the little brother who wants to be a policeman when he grows up. Mom Fia and dad Bove are a little worried and hope that he will get over those silly ideas soon. Ture’s birthday is approaching and the only thing he desires is the huge lolly pop in the candy store window. But how will the family get into the heavily guarded store? Time is running out and their neighbour Paul is sneaking around in the garden. With drastic humour and colourful images this is the perfect bridge between picture and chapter book.
Anders Sparring is a screen writer and has written television scripts for many popular children’s shows. In addition to his writing (three books about Karla Wrestler), Anders also does stand-up comedy.
Per Gustavsson is an illustrator and author. He has illustrated a number of books, both his own and for others. His books about the Princess have sold 200 000 copies and are translated to several languages.
