Sindre and the Crow
A beautiful picture book about children and loss.
Sindre’s father dies suddenly. After an initial period of mourning, life continues for everyone around him, but not for Sindre. His life has come to a standstill with his father’s death, and he becomes isolated. At school he takes out his anger and frustration, which further distances him from the world around him, until one day he realises that his father is still with him, only in a different way than before.
Erlend E. Mo depicts how Sindre slowly comes to terms with the loss of his father, and learns to go on with his own life.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Akin Düzakin.
