The Transformation

Anna Höglund

”I shall save my father from the giant who turns people into stone. I will make the giant look at herself in the mirror,” said the child.
How do you overcome a giant whose eyes turn all living things into stone? In The Transformation, Anna Höglund has been inspired by a classic story by Elsa Beskow. It’s an adventurous picture story for all ages about cunning, courage and survival.

"A tribute to the child that succeeds in what adults can't do. [...] Anna Höglund's beautiful pictures are loaded with moods and suggestive undertones"
-Boktipset

"To read The Transformation is to feel chosen. [...] Anna Höglund has done a fantastic visualization of the deepest loneliness and discouragement".
-Dagens Nyheter

"Höglund follows, in a distinctive manner the child's imaginary logic. A way to tell stories that is both simple and composite, with details in text and image interacting and creates the particular atmosphere: the atmosphere that makes everything tremble, spark, live."
