Astrid the Fly Flies High

Maria Jönsson, illustrated by Maria Jönsson

Astrid the Fly is back in a new dangerous adventure. This time she is supposed to take care of one of her 43 siblings. When little Bertil suddenly disappears Astrid starts looking for him – outside!

Astrid is an ingenious little fly, full of curiosity (like just about any four year-old you can think of…!), and we soon get to know her through Maria Jönsson’s sensitive illustrations and accessible text. The illustrations are full of vivid detail and are both clever and entertaining. In both text and pictures Maria Jönsson has captured the amusing situations and funny mix-ups that can occur when you’re a little fly in a big world.
