Marion on the Silver Islands and in the Red Forests is the story of a little girl from the North who travels through magic lands
and legends towards the eternal summer. The book is a fairy-tale and a quest, a wandering and an initiation to life: Marion meets the lost summer after a fantasy trip, after a season in psychedelic Beatles' songs. In the end, she knows what friendship means, and love and death; and what a fabulous planet this is.
A book for young, not so young and really grown-up kids!
The first book for children by an acclaimed author.
"The biggest misfortune that year was that the summer never came. It came every year, stayed for a few days, the wind got balmy and the clouds traveled back and forth. But that year, the summer forgot Nebyavik. It just slipped its mind. On June twenty-four, Marion's dad stood at the glass window and saw the summer passes by: at he end of the horizon a golden line flashed, and then a blue one, and then nothing. The snow froze on the streets-the children slid on it in their ice skates."
