Paola Persson Peroni – Has the Last Laugh

Emi Gunér & Maja Säfström

The fact that Paola was born a witch is not as supernatural as many people think. It’s actually about her being able to perceive body language and other small but important details very accurately. Paola would be an even better witch if she could also use healing herbs, but unfortunately all the plants Paola comes near die. Luckily she has her friends Sally and Benji to help her. With them she can share her most embarrassing haunting stories, witchcraft and hamster memes.

These are warm and relatable books about friendship and family for age 8+. The second book in a series about Paola Persson Peroni.


Press voices

“On social media, Emi Gunér (the author) promises money back to all who has bought the book but don’t laugh while reading. She doesn’t have to worry about going bankrupt. You laugh often a lot, and sometimes through tears.” Vi Läser

“Perfect for reading aloud. Both kids and grown-ups will laugh out loud – perhaps not always on the same passage.“ Bokfylla

Has the Last Laugh is about the big questions of life like love, friendship and death. … [but] the book is primarily not characterised by heaviness and seriousness, but by humour, joy and a sober approach to life. /…/ The highlight of this well-written, true-to-life story is the lovely relationship between Paola and her grandmother. The fact that an elderly person can be a role model for a child is clearly shown here. Overall rating 4.” Dag Hedberg, BTJ-häftet nr 10, 2021


About Everyone’s Friend:

“Emi Gunér has an eye for the small but important details of everyday life, and Maja Säfström’s clever illustrations go hand in hand with that eye. It’s a thrilling everyday drama, as we all know life can be.“ Vi Läser

“A well-written book that makes clear how important it is to be oneself and not adapt to the surroundings. High praise goes to Maja Säfström, whose many clever and charming black and white illustrations highlight the many emotional levels of the book – from humour to seriousness.” BTJ

“A lovely book about friends, peer pressure and being yourself.” Rosa Larsson-Cedendahl, Gotlands Allehanda
