Astrid the Fly

Maria Jönsson, illustrated by Maria Jönsson

Astrid has four legs, she can walk upside down on the ceiling, and she can fly at top speed! Almost all bluebottles can. But despite the fact that she can fly so fast, danger is lurking everywhere – she’s just so tiny! Although what Astrid really loves is to go on little trips of her own, preferably at night.

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.
