Viktor Builds a Bridge

In 1974, Swedish illustrator Jan Loof published a small book called Viktor bygger en bro (it exists in English: Viktor Builds a Bridge). I am very fond of it, I read it to my children when they were small, I have started reading it to my grand-children and I am now showing it to you. Please enjoy.

Once there was a man called Viktor. He lived on an island. His only friend was a tame gull.

It would be nice to see some people, said Viktor. Krrr, said the gull.
