Spot and Splodge See Stars
Spot and Splodge See StarsLotta Geffenblad, illustrated by Lotta Geffenblad
When you’re out in the dark you have to watch out! Far out in the sky there are lots of stars that shine like small spots. And a very big spot – the moon. If you watch really close, you can see letters and numbers.
Spot and Splodge are watching very carefully, straight up towards the sky. Suddenly there is a smack when they bump into each other. What a bang! They both fall over and it’s all quiet. Did they faint? But now something happens: a loud sound gets closer and something that looks like a plate is landing on the ground with a thump. A door opens and a strange fellow is climbing down. Now what is this?
Lotta Geffenblad has a calm and humouristic tone in her narration, playing with words and double meanings. Her illustrations are both modern and old at the same time.
