Children’s book 9 – Bengt

This book is about Sweden. Written and illustrated by Czech Miroslav Ivanov, 1964.


Red cottages, Scandinavian forest, Stockholm archipelago and Bengt. Very Swedish.


I got the book from Magda when I visited Prague a couple of years ago.

    Okej, Miroslav Ivanov är från och med nu min idol. Önskar att det vore jag som hade tecknat den där skogen. Och namnet på boken (och huvudkaraktären?), Bengt(!), kan man ju bara älska.
