When We Were Alone in the World

By Ulf Nilsson
Illustrated by Eva Eriksson

An extraordinarily warm and funny book about a big brother’s courage and inventiveness when he discovers his parents have been run over by a truck – or have they?

When We Were Alone in the World has the same dry humour as All the Dear Little Animals. It is so true to childhood – the boy taking on responsibility and acting beyond his years – and is all about the power of imagination.

  • Delightful story about siblings, imagination, misunderstandings
  • From the author/illustrator team of All the Dear Little Animals
