All Kai's stories

Alle Kajs historier

Kai might not be the bravest in his class, but at least he is brave enough to stand up for himself and find his own path. We follow him in a bind-up of six read-aloud stories aimed at 6+, which also exist in early reader editions.

Mette Vedsø (b. 1968) studied chemistry and biotechnology, then trained at the Writer’s School for Children’s Literature. Since 2010, she has written several critically acclaimed children’s books, including picture books and tween novels. Her work is suffused with an implicit understanding for children, especially the slightly displaced ones with big hearts – her observations and writing are moving, subtle and poetic.

Synopsis

Heart-warming, engaging stories about the children we tend to overlook. Kai is one of those children - not particularly visible, wild or attention-seeking, but nevertheless a very special boy.

It can be a mouthful to find your place in a class full of brave children who all like to shout and be heard - and who don't shy away from any challenge. Luckily, Kai gets a volcanic stone from his neighbour, Pedro. It gets warm when Kai needs it most - and when this happens, it helps Kai to face the danger.

The six stories in this read-aloud bind-up are: "Kai and the trip", "Kai and the homework", "Kai and the snails", "Kai and the water", "Kai and the cakes" and "Kai and the circus".
