Boo and Baa Gets a Visitor/Bu och Bä får besök

When Boo and Baa have to do something, it usually gets messy. They are surprised. In the end, things sort themselves out without Boo and Baa really knowing how it happened.

With seemingly simple means, Lena and Olof Landström tell stories filled with subtle humor. A unique interplay between text and image creates an engaging picture book world, where Boo and Baa get to discover the world in their own way.

The picture books about Boo and Baa are modern classics and are among the most borrowed in libraries. The popularity extends far beyond Sweden’s borders and Boo and Baa are today translated into eight languages.
