The new kids book Razzia, Hegas publishing (link in Swedish) were made in 2008 and came out just before spring in 2009. I wrote earlier about the book, and here is a photo of the book that I took recently. The book in itself, and illustrations and the cover has received good reviews. Which is always fun. Here are some comments & reviews about my illustrations inside the book and the cover design with the illustration.
Razzia, written by Leif Jacobsen
Review from Bibliotekstjänst booklet No 5 / 2009.
"Petter, with its old Puch Dakota, lost in reputation in the small village moped gangs by helping to deceive the police and rescue a friend escape a fine for speeding. Here is to be "cool" and "cruel" to gain popularity, the girls' admiration. Leif Jacobsen succeed easily create a story for young teens, which is easy to read and live enter in. It depicts how to get friends by himself to be a friend. With youthful inside talk of today, seasoned with the technicalities of the trimmed two-stroke engines mysterious realm, with sufficient realism to make the story probable, and with a lot of conciliatory humor succeeds author certainly capture even novice readers and get them to smile recognition. Stefan Lindblads dozen expressive, full, ink drawings transpose up petition. Books of this kind will lead hopefully to read more advanced literature. - Bo Nordstrand"
