Love is Better Than No Love

Rose Lagercrantz, illustrated by Eva Eriksson

It is spring and Dunne travels to Rome to attend Dad’s wedding. It is thanks to her that Dad and Vera are getting married. At least that’s what she thinks.

But to her dismay, her best friend in the whole world, Ella Frida, is not invited. Dad said no.

It is not meant to be a big event, he says, just a little family party. What will Ella Frida say when she finds out that she has not been invited to her best friend’s father’s wedding? Ella Frida doesn’t know anything yet. She is on an island in the archipelago, in her family cottage.

It gets harder and harder for the two friends to meet up. Their paths almost never cross.

The stories are about fidelity. And a difficult friendship. But love is better than no love …

This easy-to-read series deals with emotions in a way that children can understand and relate to. Dunne tries to take life as it comes and refuses to stop believing in miracles!

The accessible text is perfectly complemented by the warm and endearing illustrations.
