Reading from my latest picture book

Here I am at the charming bookstore ”Bokslukaren” by Mariatorget, reading for a whole bunch of kids from my latest picture book ”Sigrid och Natten” (Sigrid and the Night). I had a giant version of my book made for the event. Hopefully this was the first of many readings like it…
