A subtle chapter book with both depth and humor, perfect for reading out loud. Ellen Karlsson depicts a 7-year old’s universe precisely, and Eva Lindström’s images are wonderfully humorous.

It’s summer and 7-year old Selma finally gets to be in the country with grandma and grandpa.

There she doesn’t need to bother about not having a best friend in town. But the bird inside is pecking her and reminding her constantly.

However, during the summer she meets String, an eccentric girl who goes her own way.

Selma doesn’t really know how to behave, not having had a friend before. She muddles along, coping with the insecurity of this new experience. And suddenly the bird doesn’t peck as much anymore…

The first book in the series about Selma was awarded the August Prize in 2013.
