We are happy to announce that Essi Kummu’s Chatty Elias (Puhelias Elias, Tammi 2012) has been published to great reviews and sales in Estonia by Fiore Publishing. This wonderful title was nominated for the 2012 Finlandia Junior Prize. Both the author Essi Kummu and illustrator Marika Maijala ”convey their big message in a way that is understated and wistful in its tone. A little boy’s silence in front the parents’ divorce is tangible. Delicate and child-like illustrations and a skillfully told story merge into a bright work of art.” – Finlandia Junior Prize Jury 2012
