Synopsis

Mogens and Mahdi is the story about two boys who have nothing in common, except that they are the same age, live in the same building block, play the same games, laugh about the same things, and dream equally strongly about being older and cooler.

The book is a comic with 10 stories, all tying the humour and seriousness of life together in a charmingly quirky way.

The series comprises two books so far, and translation rights are currently sold to Germany, Norway and Sweden.
