The Storm

Tuva Lisa Rangström & Clara Dackenberg

Tussen has lost her glove and in the woods a storm is coming! She looks everywhere – under rocks and leaves, behind tree stumps and in small caves … -because in the middle of a storm it might be very good to have a mitten! But the forest is big and the clouds darken quickly … Everywhere the little forest creatures are preparing for the storm; doors and shutters must be closed, umbrellas opened and friends warned. Suddenly the first drops of rain fall!

The picture book Oväder is a revised version of Tuva Lisa Rangström’s acclaimed play for small children – The little storm – written in 2014 for Strindberg’s Intima Teater /Intimate Theater.

Tuva Lisa Rangström (b. 1972) is an actor and playwright. The last 20 years she has worked at a variety of city and county theatres in Sweden, made radio plays, television, and written opera librettos. Playfulness and clever issues characterize her writings, whether they are directed to children or adults.

The illustrations are made by Clara Dackenberg (b. 1987), who completed her education at the Academy of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg and The University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 2015.

“There is something secretive behind what is said in this beautiful artistic picture book. I have difficulty imagining a child who would not be fascinated by The Storm” Rating: 5 [of 5 possible]. Åsa Österlöf, BTJ-booklet 14: 2017

”An unique picture book debut with poetic, cute and surrealistic illustrations and a beautiful, finely-tuned text. A book that hopefully will lead to more collaborations!” Tidningen Kulturen, 5/6 2017

“A sweet story filled with love for storms. I totally love Clara Dackenberg’s illustrations. Perfect book to read on a very rainy summer day! Or well every other day too!” Prickiga Paula 12/6 2017
