The Robberson Family and the Gold Diamond

Anders Sparring & Per Gustavsson

Ture can do almost everything. He can count to a thousand and knows a bunch of French words. He can tie his own shoes, work the washing machine, the stove and the remote control for the TV just as well as any grown-up. But lie, that he can’t.

“Then you’ll have to practice,” mom says sternly. Ture gets a knot in his stomach. No matter how hard he tries, he just can’t.

Because, the thing is, the family Robberson encourage their family members to lie and take things from others. And now, mom Fia and dad Rob are planning a visit to the diamond show in the capital. Since Ture can’t lie, he reveals the plan to Paul Eesman, who decides to stop them. Ture and his younger sister Ellen see no other alternative than to break into jail to ask their grandma for help. With drastic humour and colourful images, this is the perfect, bridge between picture and chapter book, for age 6-9.

Press voices
"These books about Papa Rob, Criminelle, Sheriff the dog, and everyone else in the Knyckertz family are filled with humor and wordplay. Perfect for reading aloud or putting in the hands of a primary schoolchild who wants to read alone." – Dala-Demokraten

"That it's aesthetically pleasing and appealing also plays a big role—quite simply, that [the books] are cute, scary, and funny. Just as it is to be in the vicinity of the Knyckertz family." – Dagens Nyheter
