Maria Nilsson Thore, illustrated by Maria Nilsson Thore

Plop! Something falls on Östa’s hat. It’s a smooth, round and warm little nut. Better yet, there’s someone inside! Underneath the hard green shell is a tiny living seed. But when Östa pokes at it, the little seed is terrified. It has never seen a child before.

Maria Nilsson Thore’s latest picture book is a story about what it’s like to be small and frightened, how what’s new and unknown can be scary and letting friendship grow with time. Previously published in 17 languages, and with sales of over 800,000 copies in Sweden alone, Maria Nilsson Thore is one of Sweden’s most beloved and important authors and illustrators. Written with Nilsson Thore’s signature warmth, humour and philosophical finesse, this new picture book features endearing characters and atmospheric settings.
