Bim’s World. The Class Trip

Kristina Sigunsdotter & Jenny Jordahl

Bim’s World is an incredibly funny and engaging series by August Prize winner Kristina Sigunsdotter.

A major part of children’s lives take place at school. Same goes for Bim: her life centers around having friends that are kind and friends that are not-so-kind, about carrying a soup of tears in your chest, and hiding in the gym for hours with someone you like.

In Bim’s World we are introduced to Bim’s artist-mom who likes to walk around naked during summer and goes into hibernation during winter, and the really ugly dachshund Weiner. We also get to know Emon, who makes Bim happy all the time, and of course all the other friends in class 4A. In this third book of the series, the class is planning to go on a trip, but to Bim’s despair her mom volunteers to come along.

With an unfailing eye for middle grade and great humor, Sigunsdotter creates characters and situations that make the reader feel.

Kristina Sigunsdotter is a journalist and a writer, who was awarded the August Prize for The Secrets of Cricket Karlsson. Jenny Jordahl is one of Norway’s foremost illustrators.
