‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Hilbert and Bob are good friends. One day Hilbert tells Bob he’s been beyond the other side of the tree on more than one occasion, even though he’s really only been there once to have a look, not daring to go any further. He even tells his friend that he’s flown around the world using his own wings, despite the fact that he’s a dog! The trouble is that Bob just isn’t quite sure what to believe.
In another charming tale from Faroese artist, author and illustrator Bárđur Oskarsson, translated by Marita Thomsen, the minimalist storytelling and comical cartoon-like illustrations in pen and ink and a blue watercolour wash, carry a message about the importance of friendship, trust and life’s misgivings.
