Last Thursday author and jury member Stefan Casta received the Carl von Linné-plaque at Stockholm City Library for his book The Bumble-Bee´s Herbarium (our translation, Humlans Herbarium, illustrations by Maj Fagerberg), a non-fiction book for children.

The Linné-plaque is awarded annually by the Swedish Library Association to the best non-fiction book for children and young adults, and the award amounts to 25 000 SEK.

The book is actually a flora, a herbarium and a plant press, all in one. Here´s a video on you can use the book:

Another book by Stefan Casta, The House Where the Bumble-Bees live (our transl.) is the Swedish contribution to the IBBY Honour List. More about honour list here.
