The World’s Richest

Alexander Karim, Malin Karim , illustrated by Andrea Femerstrand

After a rainstorm destroys most of the village, nearly all the inhabitants come back. But instead of helping each other and restoring what is left of the village, everybody argues and tries to grab as much as they can for themselves. Then an unexpected solution appears – a real treasure map! People immediately start scheming ways to keep the treasure for themselves. Alba, Elias and Yanko the goat have to find the treasure first so that the riches

can be shared equally and all the villagers can become friends again. But will they find it in time?

This book is the standalone follow-up to The World’s Bravest, yet another exciting adventure about timid Alba, her lazy goat Yanko and their friends. The World’s Richest also asks important questions about solidarity, friendship and the things that truly matter in life.
