Backup Princess

Torun Lian, Øyvind Torseter


In her role as princess, Alice is a sore winner. But as a literary character […] she is quite irresistable. Both verbally and for her shy performance on the literary stage.
The Brage jury


Alice cannot wait for the school play to be over. Luckily, it’s not necessary for Alice to go on stage to sing and act in front of the school. She is just an extra – a backup princess. But then something happens, something that is not suppose to happen. Helene falls and gets concussion. Alice has to face her fears.

Illustrated by the internationally acclaimed and award winning artist Øyvind Torseter.
