The Story of the Little Angel

At midsummer Karl and Vida receive a mysterious package in the mail. The package contains a pair of binoculars, a compass, a mosquito net, two flashlights and a letter from their grandfather. Strange and inexplicable things are happening in the forest and he needs their help.

They say that on a summer night
with spangly starlight aglow
an itty-bitty angel fell
from heaven to the forest below.

This self-contained continuation of the entrancing Historien om Nissen (The Story of the Elf), contains beautiful summer-themed illustrations by Ursula Seeberg.

About the author

The extensive authorship of Bjarne Reuter, born 1950, includes humorous tales for children, young adult novels, crime novels, epic adventures, adult books, film and theater. But it is with his books for children and young adults that he has made his mark. Several of his novels and filmitisations, as well as many of his characters, have become Danish cultural touchstones.
