About Elsa Beskow’s well-known books and characters, Catharina says:
I grew up with them and have read many of them. I remember dreaming of being in that fantasy world. Everyone was kind, even though there were some horrible and scrary trolls, the whole thing felt warm and safe. Now it feels good to take a valuable part of the Swedish cultural heritage into the 21st century”.
