Otto Goes North

By Ulrika Kestere
Illustrated by Ulrika Kestere

A cosy story about friendship, travel and knitting

Far up in the north is a blueberry-blue house with a grass roof, where Lisa and Nils live. One day a tourist arrives: Otto has cycled for months, maybe years, to visit his friends. Otto wants to do a spectacular painting of the northern lights to remember his visit, but he is from a hot country and it is very cold here. He can’t paint for shivering so hard. Lisa and Nils are surprised—Otto has a fur coat just like them! They didn’t know there was a difference between fur and fur. His friends decide to knit him a jumper.

  • A warm, funny book from an up-and-coming illustrator
  • Will appeal to knitters and people who enjoy crafts—follow the animals collect fur, spin and dye yarn, find a pattern and knit up the sweater
  • A story about friendship across borders and other lands
