Cheeky and Scamp – So near yet so far?

Maria Nilsson Thore, illustrated by Maria Nilsson Thore

Meet Cheeky and Scamp in this playful and poetic picture book about loneliness and friendship, about crazy plans and daring ideas and about longing to share one´s existence with someone. Maria Nilsson Thore is back with another story full of affection, meaning, and heart-warming humour…..all depicted in wonderful illustrations.


Cheeky and Scamp each live on islands in the middle of the sea. They feel small and alone, so one day they decide to try and find a way to bridge the sea that separates them. How can that be done? Most things seem too dangerous or too difficult and it truth be told, they are both a little lazy. So their lonely, empty lives continue. All works out in the end although not at all as they had imagined….
