“Vesta-Linnéa and Friends tells the story of Vesta-Linnéa who struggles with the feeling of disappointment as she feels abandoned by her favourite friend. The picture book dives into the reality of a child’s everyday life and the role of a smartphone.”
Runeberg Junior Jury
"The picture book’s focus is on social relationship related everyday issues. The artwork by Savolainen sums up superbly the feelings of disappointment and rejection from the child’s perspective."
