Boo and Baa and Poor Burt/Bu och Bä och stackars Bo

Sweden’s funniest sheep are back! The picture books about Boo and Baa have been loved by hundreds of thousands of children through the years.

Spring is in the air. Boo and Baa are going for a bike tour. Maybe Burt wants to join, as he has a new bike with hand brake and three gears. But Burt is ill and has to stay at home. Poor Burt! How can Boo and Baa cheer him up?

With lots of humour, a keen eye for detail and marvellous pictures, Olof and Lena Landström depict small adventures, close friendship and everyday trouble, often with an unexpected ending. Because who could guess that spring’s first bike tour would end up in new, smart sunglasses? “Good to have if you have a cold too”, says Boo.
