Stories of Journey from around Europe from the Aarhus 39

by Aarhus 39

QUEST is one of two anthologies that Alma Books and Hay Festival have launched, comprising original stories from the Aarhus 39, the result of an ambitious pan-European project with European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 showcasing 39 of the best children and YA writers aged 39 and under across Europe.

QUEST, a volume of 17 stories aimed at children, will whisk you away from dark bedrooms to new dimensions and fantasy realms, via the Russian countryside and modern Rome. You’ll encounter talking field mice, invisible friends, flying kraiks, white elephants, runaway books and wardrobes that act as magic portals. Hopping across all sorts of genres and showcasing authors from all over Europe – from the Basque country and Cyprus to Iceland and the Czech Republic – this book is certain to broaden horizons and engage the reader in all kinds of fun.
