Cute book about Kjell and his hamster

Today school starts for all kids in Malmö! Both parents and children feel a bit nervous. That goes for our family too. Now it is time for A B C and 1 2 3! Here is a book about going to school and having a bit of adventure in the classroom.

I was contacted by Sanna from Finland last week. She had found my earlier post about Ilon Wikland. Sanna collects old children’s books, just like I do, and wanted to see more images from the cute little book “Kjell och hans hamster”.

It is such a simple little book, but so sweet, and I loved it when I was a kid!

Text by Ulf Schenkmanis, apparently it was his first of many books, images by the famous Ilon Wikland. My book is printed by Illustrationsförlaget 1972, in the “Minibok” serie.

I also have another post here about Ilon Wikland and Astrid Lindgren.
