Line Larsen is eight years old. She lives in Kastanje Bakke with her little sister, her little brother, her mother and her father. And in the guesthouse in the backyard lives Uncle Mourits with his turtle.
Lina gets a mango is the story of what happened to Line Larsen on a sunny week in early June. It's a story about a mango, about a mystery - and also about sharing. The story also teaches children that you cannot always judge people by their behavior and appearance, as there may be underlying things that you cannot see on the surface. The enchanting illustrations bring the book to life with pictures of e.g. a cat that has wheels to help its mobility, and a man who breaks with societal gender norms by wearing earrings.
The book is written by Dr. Phil Zuckerman, illustrated by Shima Zareiand translated by the children's book author Andreas Valentin Wadskjær.
