Linnea i Målarens trädgård

Linnea in Monet’s Garden

Christina Björk

Illustrated by

Lena Anderson

This book is a classic! And now it is coming in a new, revitalised edition in a large format.

Linnea has been to Paris! And in the garden of the painter Claude Monet! At last she could stand on the little Japanese bridge that can be seen on so many paintings. And in Paris Linnea could see many of the original paintings. Now she knows exactly why Monet was called ‘the impressionist’.

 This wonderful informative picture book about Linnea and her Uncle Blomkvist’s journey to Giverny was created back in 1985. Now the book has been revitalised, the information has been updated and it is in a larger format.

Lena Anderson’s and Christina Björk’s book about Linnea is loved by children and adults alike, in Sweden as well as abroad. The English translations of the Linnea books have sold almost one million copies. 

Christina Björk and Lena Anderson were pioneers with their playfully pedagogical books – sensible information in a playful and attractive form. When they presented Linnea, the girl who loves nature, it was something completely new in the world of children’s books.
