A girl looks for a lost photo album that used to belong to her father. She rows out to the island in the middle of the night, alone, to explore the abandoned house. Is the photo album in one of the empty rooms? And will it give her an answer to the question about why she knows so little about her family?
A strong and sensitive picture adventure about searching for your family history and about finding the answers closer than you think. A book to be drawn into, with a very special mood and a unique imagery that engages the reader.
Astrid Åhlén was born in 1991 and lives in a cabin by the ocean outside Göteborg. The Abandoned Island is the first children’s book for which she is the sole creator.
