Tyra and the Great Thinker

Ulf Stark, illustrated by Olof Landström

In his new book, Ulf Stark lets his main character become a hero in a fantastic and exciting space adventure!

Tyra is a completely ordinary girl. And one completely ordinary evening she is sitting at home in the kitchen and slowly working her way through the maths sums because she has a maths test soon in school. She doesn’t like it when Dad stubbornly says she must practise, practise, practise at doing her sums. When she slams the door of her room that evening, she is in a bad temper. But that bad mood is soon transformed into one of pure amazement when a little man wearing an overcoat and hat, but no bigger than a pear, suddenly appears just outside her window and taps on the glass.

Olof Landström is one of Sweden’s most popular illustrators. He has previously illustrated other books by Ulf Stark.

This is the start of a remarkable and fantastic journey to the planet Klotus. An alien place where Tyra gets a friend, Prim, and has to outwit the revolting monstrostriches in the Cold Mountains that are threatening the population in the town of Globus.
