One of my projects this year is to re-read those books that somehow mattered a bit more than other books. Not just fun, or interesting, but bit more. And I will start with the first book I can remember that brought the magic of literature to me. This book was a picture book, Historien om någon (The Story About Someone) by Åke Löfgren and illustrated by Egon Möller-Nielsen, and I was three years old. It’s something of a classic in Sweden, first published in 1951.
