The 25th Anniversary Edition of a beloved classic

Fall 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most treasured books in the field of children’s literature. When it was first published in 1987, Publishers Weekly wrote, “Linnea, a fresh-faced European girl, gives an art history lesson in the gentlest way, through a first-person account. Her story is like a scrapbook, reliving a trip she took to Paris and Giverny to learn about Monet’s water-lily paintings. Airy, light-filled watercolors showing Linnea in Monet’s environment are juxtaposed with period photographs of the artist and reproductions of the paintings themselves. Also included are Monet’s biography, a family tree and a brief guide to Paris.”

Now available for the first time in the U.S. in a new enlarged trim size, Linnea will delight a new generation of readers.

Christina Bjork and Lena Anderson have collaborated on children’s books for many years, including Linnea’s Windowsill Garden and Linnea’s Almanac, which won the West German National Children’s Book Award in 1984. Like Linnea, the authors were nature-loving city girls, born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. The studio they share today is a charming country house with a lovely garden right in the heart of Stockholm.
