Synopsis

Children love to read the same stories over and over again and here is for once a series that parents won't mind repeatedly revisiting: from journalist Thomas Brunstrøm comes a refreshingly funny series, aimed at both girls and boys, about Sally and her dad, expertly illustrated by Thorbjørn Christoffersen.

This is one of the most popular picture book series in Denmark with sales figures reaching a (for Danish standards) staggering 500.000 copies. Nordisk Film acquired the Film/TV rights and are developing a live-action cinema release due to high demand.

Abroad, the series has so far reached a Polish readership (Wydawnictwo Juka-91) and has reached bestselling status there there with demand for merchandise, e.g. a wall calendar, planned for 2023 release.
