UNDER MÅNEN/KUUN VALOSSA

Yey!!! My first children’s book is out now!!! Here in Finland it’s published in Swedish (Under månen) by Schildts & Söderströms and in Finnish (Kuun valossa) by S & S.

Illustrations by Ilja Karsikas.

“When I was little, my mum flew to the moon. She worked at the circus. That night they shot her up in the air, like always. But it wasn’t an ordinary night; it was a night full of magic. Once my mum was in the air, she never came down, she simply went on flying. Through the tent, past the clouds, all the way to the moon. That’s where she’s sitting now. Looking down at us and smiling.” 

According to the publishing house: 

”Aki-Pekka Sinikoski makes his debut as an author with a warm and philosophical text that receives a precise and personal accompaniment from Ilja Karsikas’ watercolour illustrations. In Under the Moon, they create a magical world where sadness, but also beauty and absurdity, have a place. This sensitive and wistful book about the meaning of love, existence and the purpose of life brings to mind children’s classics of world literature like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince.”

As an author Aki-Pekka Sinikoski is internationally represented by Helsinki Literary Agency.
