The Norwegian author Endre Lund Eriksen and illustrator Endre Skandfer will attend the annual Shanghai International Literary Festival on March 16th and the Capital M Literary Festival in Beijing on March 23th.
They will present their children’s book “The Monsters of Dunderly”, which recently has been translated into Chinese. Lund Eriksen and Skandfer will also visit Guangzhou during their stay in China.
“The Monsters of Dunderly” tells the story about Modika, Buster, Moy and a lot of other monsters. They live far away from people and high up in the mountains, in a place called Dunderly. Here they can play, shout and have as much lundibunder as they like (lundibunder is a new word the monsters use to describe anything that is fun and noisy). One day a package arrives with a new and mysterious monster in it, and the Dunderly monsters are put to the test.
The target age group is children from 5 –10 years old. Lund Eriksen and Skandfer have also created books about the same monsters for children below the age of 5. You can read more about Dunderly here.
