This illustration caused controversy in the US and had to be changed. It shows Garmann peeing and a glipse of the girl’s nickers…

Stian Hole’s art brings back so much of the feeling of my childhood. Endless days, strange encounters and intense details. There is no way I should try to describe it to you. Just try to get hold of his books and share the strange and beautiful moments of a summer in a universe so very much like ours, just that much more vivid and intense in its details. You will find it waiting for you – through the looking glass…
