Green













As a child and, even more so, as an adult I have loved the drawings by swedish Elsa Beskow. Her children books are so sweet and naive, and in her nature stories like Peter in Blueberry Land, the picture of wildlife and small fantasy creatures are just beautiful. One of my favorite books by Elsa Beskow is Aunt Green, Aunt Brown and Aunt Lavender. Not so much a fairytale as some of her other books, but I think it's my favorite because it makes me wonder: which colour aunt would I be? Well, today I seem to be Aunt Green. How about you?
