ENGLISH
A novel for children and young teenagers by Alexandra Salmela about friendship with an ethical and ecological message. Combining humour and suspense, the author tells an allegorical tale showing how greed can ruin humanity and the world around us. In the middle of a barren wilderness, a terrible monster called Blöeglöek lives under the roots of the very last tree, which he guards with his life. In the wilderness, there is also a palace where the Princess lives. Although she has everything, she dreams one night about a miraculous tree and the most dazzling star in the universe. In her pursuit of the dream, she goes out into the wilderness where she meets various weird creatures. When the Princess meets Blöeglöek, two opposing worlds and viewpoints clash. There follows an irreconcilable struggle in which hope, the will to change and unexpected friendship are all born.
