MAMMA MU HITTAR HEM
When a worldly-wise stork shows up at the farm, Mamma Mu asks herself the question: what is really a home? How does she know that the field and farm where she is just now is her home? What if there was something better, somewhere else in the big, big world? Crow works hard to show to his friend that the grass isn’t greener on the other side of the road – but sometimes, one has to get lost first, in order to find home.
With: Christian Ryltenius (director) and Filippa Torstensson (producer)
NELLY RAPP – MONSTERAGENT
In Nelly Rapp – Monsteragent, we see how Nelly comes into contact with the Monster Academy for the very first time. Nelly and her dog, London, are spending autumn half-term at her uncle Hannibal’s house and he seems to lead a double life – as a monster agent. Nelly is soon surrounded by vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein monsters and is pulled into an intensely exciting adventure. There are so far nineteen books about Nelly Rapp, authored by Martin Widmark and illustrated by Christina Alvner.
