Aki-Pekka Sinikoski & Ilja Karsikas: Kuun valossa
Ari-Pekka Sinikoski debytoi kauniilla, filosofisella tarinalla, jota Ilja Karsikkaan taidokkaat akvarellikuvitukset täydentävät.
Rakkauden merkitystä, olemassaoloa ja elämän tarkoitusta pohtiva herkkä ja haikea teos tuo mieleen maailmankirjallisuuden klassikot, kuten Antoine de Saint-Exupéryn Pikku Prinssin tai Astrid Lindgrenin Mio, poikani Mion.
Aki-Pekka Sinikoski & Ilja Karsikas: Under månen
När jag var jag liten flög min mamma upp till himlen.
Hon jobbade på cirkus och den natten sköt de upp henne i luften som vanligt.
Men det var inte en vanlig kväll. Det var en magisk kväll.
Efter att hon flugit upp, kom hon aldrig mera ner. Hon bara flög och flög. Först genom tältet, sen genom molnen, hela vägen till månen.
Nu sitter hon där på månen. Jag har sett henne många gånger. Hon ler ofta.
Aki-Pekka Sinikoski och Ilja Karsikas skapar en magisk värld där det vemodiga, men också det vackra och det absurda, får plats.
Kvällsbadet för berättelsens barn till en enslig ö där udda existenser funderar på livet medan de kokar fisksoppa. Däremellan spelar de schack och letar strandfynd. Men sedan ringer Gud upp och säger att det är dags att ta sig hemåt till pappa som väntar.
Aki-Pekka Sinikoski debuterar som författare med en filosofisk och varm text som får ett träffsäkert och personligt ackompanjemang i Ilja Karsikas illustrationer i akvarell.

What Cartooning Really Is – The Major Interviews with Charles M. Schulz
A collection of insightful interviews with the creator of the most popular comic strip of all time.

They reveal him to be a man who embodies elements of all of his characters―from the goofiness of Snoopy to the melancholy of Charlie Brown to the brashness of Lucy and more―but who also contains depths of personality far beyond the borders of his strip.
