The rights to Ulf Stark and Linda Bondestam’s The Dictator (Diktatorn) have been sold to Aschehoug in Norway and to KompasGuide Publishing House in Russia. The Dictator is an empathetic and intelligent tale about a little dictator who thinks the world revolves around him.
“Ulf Stark is one of the greatest Swedish storytellers, an Astrid Lindgren of our time. With Bondestam as illustrator of Stark’s verses, the result is a series of richly patterned collages in which the composition of every picture is minutely balanced, which makes reading the book a harmonious aesthetic experience.” – Hufvudstadsbladet
