Shaun Tan at Junibacken

This morning this year’s Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award winner Shaun Tan visited Junibacken, the house of fantasy play in the middle of Stockholm. Just outside stands the sculpture of Astrid Lindgren, created by Hertha Hillfon.

At Junibacken all winners are presented in a display designed by Suzanne Crepault and it is customary that they sign a guest book upon their visit to Stockholm. Shaun Tan illustrated the character from his book The Lost Thing.

Of course there was time to go on the ride through the stories of Astrid Lindgren, together with CEO Ulf Larsson. There was a brief stop for an interview in the land of the Brothers Lionheart.
