About the Book
Egon the elk (the majestic animal itself is known as ‘the king of the forest’ in Scandinavia), used to gulp down Brussels sprouts in people’s gardens every single autumn! Needless to say, helping himself to several of his five a day was not appreciated by the farmers..
This story is a mishmash of the above-mentioned fables and their acquaintances, who just like us humans want to live happily ever after.
Born and raised in Sweden. I have since spent 20 years in the US, Canada and the UK. I love animals (therefore a fable story) and have been horseback riding since I was a child. Apart from a fairly un-rock n' roll full-time office job, I also volunteer as a support rider at Her Majesty The Queen's Royal Lifeguard stables. Riding in Hyde Park at the crack of dawn (while most people are still asleep) is pretty incredible! I have ants in my pants! Cannot sit still and enjoy being outdoors. I like travelling but don't do relaxing beach holidays. I got bored and tired the last time and ended up learning a new sport, which I'm now obsessed with (golf). I'm addicted to working out, which comes in handy as I enjoy my food and fine wines. I read tons of books but do not watch TV (the latter REALLY stresses me out). I have dedicated this book to my lovely nephew Ebbe, ahead of his birthday. Please don't ever grow up - conversations with you are so much more fun than those with grown up's!
