Aston’s presentsLotta Geffenblad, illustrated by Lotta Geffenblad
It’s Aston’s birthday! He gets a bike, and his aunt sends him a present by mail. It’s a kite, and also a board, so the kite wouldn’t break during the transport.
But today it’s raining, so Aston cannot try his bike or his kite. The board, though, is good to play with inside! A perfect bridge for his cars.
Then finally, there’s good weather for a bike – and kite – hike. Aston thinks it’s a bit difficult to fly a kite. The kite is strong, and suddenly it crashes in a tree and gets stuck there! Oh no! When Daddy and Aston get hold of it there is not much left of it.
Daddy has to be comforted! Aston makes a boat using a piece of the broken kite and the board. You can really count on the board!
The second book about Aston. The first, Aston’s stones, won the first prize in a picture book contest, and has been praised for its poetical text and magical illustrations.
