Children & Young Adults

The Great Tonni2Ton

Adam O.’s stories have something to say, and they speak to both children and adults. They have speed, action, humor, deep feeling and ethical dilemmas. So it is with The Great Tonni2Ton, a collection of three fantastic picture books about the spunky little heroine Ingeborg—a modern Pippi-character. The book is a salute to the child’s imagination and invisible friends in their many forms. Here we have both a massive troll—Tonni2Ton—and a dragon so small, and green and light that it fits in a cigar box. The illustrated pages are beautifully varied and in Adam O.’s signature style—with many excellent details and angles. Perfect for reading aloud.
