Malte Persson's dark saga is a rhyme book for children between 0 and 10 years old, but equally suitable for 'older kids'. It narrates the travels by a main character who is never seen, and who travels through the world's most dangerous places, through deserts and swamps and finally through a castle inhabited by a warring monarch, a thousand chefs who salt the food with their tears, and a gloomy princess with her unused, forgotten toys.

Originals from the book are in exhibition at the Nordic Watercolor Museum from 22.09.13 — 16.02.2014, in the exhibition entitled The Picture Book in New Guises.
