The Danish publisher, Hovedlandet, has just bought the rights from the Faroese publisher, Bókadeildin, to publish two picture books for children by Faroese author and illustrator Edward Fuglø. One of the books, Apollonia, was published in 2007 and was nominated for the West Nordic children and young People’s Literature Prize the same year. Apollonia is about a seamstress at the old theatre who has always wanted to be an actress. One day she puts on Ophelia’s dress and suddenly something very strange happens. Janus er ein stjørna (Janus is a star) was published in 2009. The book is about Janus who ventures into a journey among the stars and there he meets Ursus the polar bear who needs a fearless helper on a dangerous quest. In 2011 the Faroese ensemble Aldubáran released a CD featuring the story, narrated by Jensina Olsen, and music composed by Páll Sólstein. Janus er ein stjørna has been performed several times on stage with narrator and live music in schools and cultural venues in the Faroe Islands.
