Popular and engaging children's books
The handbook for superheroes series is one of Sweden's most popular children's books at the moment. To date, the books have sold over 900,000 copies, been translated into over 20 languages and are topping the lists for both library lending and children's book sales each year. They have won both the Crime Time Award for children in 2018 and the Best Audiobook of the Year for children in 2019. Currently, 6 books have been published, and there are plans for a total of 24 books.
The books follow the main character Lisa's development after she finds a handbook in how to become a superhero and the exciting adventures that take place around her after she takes on the task of training her superpowers. At the same time as she develops as a person and superhero, she is faced with trials, both by evil villains and in her personal life. The book series deals with several important topics, such as Lisa being teased at school and having low self-esteem because of this. As children's books, the series takes a very strong responsibility and treats these topics in a way that educates, inspires and provides understanding and insight, adapted so that children can easily absorb it.
The children's books in the Handbook for Superheroes series are available for purchase both online, for example at Adlibris, and in stores around the country. The books are suitable for children between 6-9 years old but are exciting and insightful reading even for older children and adults. All pages are covered with beautiful illustrations mixed with short text boxes, which really makes it easy to experience and get involved in the story and the world in which it takes place.
The Swedish books are also available as audio books and are read by Frida Hallgren. The audio books can also be bought online at e.g. Adlibris. If you, your students or your children have already devoured the children's books, there are also role-plays where the story continues as children themselves can become heroes in Rosenhill, build their characters, put them to the test and build a story with their friends and their characters. . The role-playing game is available for purchase via our own web shop, where you will also find official t-shirts. In addition to the children's books that make up the official document, there are several books aimed at children of the same age with bonus material, fun crafts, puzzles and intricate riddles.
