The boys at the Summer Island

Back to Lars Lerin

Enjoy a summer stay by the sea with the Lerin family!

They pack the car and travel through Sweden’s countryside to eventually arrive on an island in the sea. Fläskön and the West Coast are something different from the county of Värmland: the flora, fauna and sea awaken the joy of discovery in both fathers and boys. It will be a summer with trips along the shore. The boys, Gabriel and Rafael, find clams and hermit crabs, they fish for crabs from the jetty and accompany dad Lars on painting excursions. The whole family stocks up and people watch in the tiny town of Fjällbacka.

This is an atmospheric story, richly illustrated with Lars Lerin’s watercolor paintings, a celebration of beach life, the archipelago and the curiosity of summer.
