Help! He’s Sinking

Jo Salmson, illustrated by Veronica Isaksson

Linn’s grandfather loves visiting castles. He has seen at least 154! Now he, Linn and her mum are going to Drottningholm where the king lives. I am very pleased when Linn invites me to go with them. But when we are about to set off, it seems that Eden and Samir want to go too. It’s not much fun because Linn spends most of the time talking to Eden. The boat trip turns out to be an adventure as we rescue a man who has fallen into the water. And at the castle we meet the king… or do we really?

Friends and school are very important topics in these easy-to-read stories and dilemmas often arise.
