Synopsis

Children love to read the same stories over and over again and here is for once a series that parents won't mind repeatedly revisiting: from journalist Thomas Brunstrøm comes a refreshingly funny series, aimed at both girls and boys, about Sally and her dad, expertly illustrated by Thorbjørn Christoffersen. There are eight books so far and a ninth one coming this autumn, Sally’s Dad is a Bad Loser.

This is a series that is growing fast in popularity in Denmark with sales figures reaching a (for Danish standards) staggering 100.000 copies. Additionally, we have seen a great surge of interest from several Film/TV production companies, and negotiations for an option to develop a live action TV series in collaboration with the author/illustrator duo are ongoing.

Abroad, the series has so far reached a Polish readership (Wydawnictwo Juka-91) and is also growing fast in popularity there; the first book having sold nearly 4000 copies in the first half year since publication and eight further books are now under contract.
