The Book about Sailor and Pekka/Boken om Sailor och Pekka

In Jockum Nordström’s praised and beloved children’s books about Sailor, former seaman, and his best friend Pekka the dog, Nordström mixes collages and drawings in stories about everyday adventures elevated by absurdism and curiosity.

In this 30th anniversary edition, all five stories about Sailor and Pekka are included.
