FRANK THE MONSTER to Junibacken
FRANK THE MONSTER becomes a theatre play at Junibacken, the children literature museum in Astrid Lindgren’s name.
It’s official, Mats Strandberg’s wonderful children horror series FRANK THE MONSTER, about 9 year old Frank who is bitten by the neighbor’s dog and starts to dream about turning into a monster, will be adapted to a theater play at Junibacken, ”the Astrid Lindgren house”, a children’s cultural center with books at its heart. The premiere is planned to early spring 2019. Junibacken is located on beautiful Djurgården in Stockholm.
”It’s such an incredible honor. Astrid has been a huge inspiration for my children’s books. I especially admire how she left a little bit of room for melancholia in all the fun and excitement. As a kid, her books gave me a lot if strength. They taught me how to be brave, even if I was afraid.”
