Balloon Longing, Hide and Seek and Two Elves in a Ditch

Josefine Sundström, illustrated by Emma Göthner

In this book we get to follow Saga in five stand-alone chapters of when Saga plays hide and seek at Samir’s house and wets herself, and about a zoo visit filled with envy. One story is about a Christmas celebration with Sagas grandfather on the countryside with two Santa Clauses and a car in the ditch. In another story Saga’s mum and dad happen to fight with each other and Saga immediately thinks they will get a divorce. Saga has a strong will and she also succeeds to choose an afternoon activity that fits her perfectly, even though her dad wants something else.

Saga’s Stories are generously illustrated read-aloud books that describe little and big moments in Saga’s everyday life. Five, six, seven-year-olds who are beginning to read for themselves also want funny and lively stories with a lot of content! This is a series that fills the gap between read-aloud books and read-it-yourself books.
