A journey in outer space
Can you imagine that someone has actually been on the moon!? Alva dreams about flying through space as well. But does she have to wait until she’s a grown-up?
In mid-July 2019 it was exactly 50 years since the Apollo 11 mission and the first moon-landing. This story is inspired by this real-life event.

The book is suitable for children who have learnt how to read, but still need someone sitting beside them to lend a hand.

Anders Totland (b. 1986) has released books for children and young adults in a variety of genres. In 2017 he received the Nynorsk Children’s Literature Prize for his young adult novel, Engel i snøen (The Angel in the Snow).

Line Halsnes (b. 1981) is an illustrator and author. In addition to illustrating picture books for other writers, she has also created picture books of her own, for example Godtegrisen (The Sweet-Toothed Pig) and Stakkars lille hjerte (Poor Little Heart).
