children’s book by Gudrun Kristensen, illustrated by Astrid Vebæk

Trans. title: The Stone-Children


the book

Stone City is situated in a fantasyworld that in many ways resembles Greenland; it is far north, no trees – only stones. The children of the city passers time by throwing stones at stuff. Buildings, windows, and what not… But then Old Tio gets an idea: To build a club house of stones for the children.

The book is fun and educative about how children must learn to adapt to society but also to find their place in the world.
