Høyt i det blå or High in the clouds is a book for the little older kids. I have read it for Erlend and he liked it. So I'll have to read it for Eirin soon. It's written by Paul McCartney and the illustrations are beautiful!
One day Ebbe Ekorn (Wirral the squirrel) has to leave his forest because the evil Gretsch is destroying it. He leaves to try to find the fabled land of Dyreriket (Animalia), where all animals can live in freedom.
On his way he meet among others the brave squirrel girl Edvina (Wilhamina), Ratsi and the frog Frosko (Froggo). His plan is to save all enslaved animals. And it turns into a danger and exciting adventure.
