The Eel’s Key/Ålens nyckel

There’s always a lot of people in the house where Emma lives, and things are always happening. Emma doesn’t have her own house key; she has to wait until somebody else opens the door. When she wants to go to the bathroom, there’s always a bunch of kids taking baths and brushing their teeth. And when she’s hungry, there’s no more soup.

Emma longs for some quiet and her own room. But then she meets an eel that, in exchange for its own life, gives her a key, a magic key … The Eel’s Key is Bjarke Stenbæk Kristensen’s debut book. It is a magical tale full of hidden places and details, but also a story about the importance of being able to get away, to be by yourself for a little while.
