Risto Rapper and the Noodlehead

Risto RäppääjäThe Bologna Children’s Book Fair is this weekend, and I’ve recently translated samples from several children’s books for the event, which was fun.

One of my favorites was Risto Rapper and the Noodlehead, (Risto Räppääjä ja Nuudelipää) a funny book for pre-teens from the popular Risto Rapper series by Sinikka and Tiina Nopola. Maybe it means I have a childish sense of humor, but I really like these books.

Here’s a sample.

More Finnish children’s literature
