Atlas of Solitary Islands
How deep is the sea? Where do whales sleep? Emma has a lot of important questions, but mom only wants to take cute pictures of her. Emma stops talking to mom, and moves to her own island with Aimo the Orangutan. He is a good listener, and they talk about hills, oceans and whales. But one day the island suddenly starts drifting away, over the page in the atlas towards the darkest part of the ocean. This is a heartfelt story about a mother- daughter relationship, big questions and a little girl who finds consolation in exploring imaginary worlds.
