Grandmother’s Library

Submitted by totil on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 20:31

Albertina lives in a peculiar world. There are no books and the special educational machines in school only teach about loan interests rates. The Internet has been prohibited for years and the Gold Bank has gained control of most of the world. Finally grownups start to disappear one by one. That's when Grandmother Huld turns up with an enormous library of books and dangerous knowledge. From now on nothing stays the same.

Grandmother’s Library came out in Iceland in 2009 and in Denmark in 2010.
It will be published in Norway and Finland in 2012. It won the Reykjavik literary award in 2010 and was nominated for the Nordic countries Children book prize in 2011.
