The Golden Tower

Klaus Hagerup

Britt Johanne’s little brother Henrik has lost his voice. He has simply stopped talking. Britt Johanne understands a lot of what Henrik is doing and what is important to him. But she misses his voice! And she is sure she knows when it happened – when his voice disappeared. It must have been behind the yellow gate. When he crashed into it on his snow racer that time.

The intense atmosphere and wonderful mix of realism and imagination bring to mind Hagerup’s first childrens’ book THE LAND WHERE TIME WAS GONE, which won the Critics’ Prize in 1989.
