Nina lives in a dusty town, haunted by the six angry wolves of the week - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day brings never-ending chores, and no one can rest until they are done.
Legend speaks of a seventh, kinder wolf, but everybody knows an evil witch stole it and keeps it locked away. But Nina has had enough, so she sets on an ambitious quest - go to the forgotten realms, vanquish the witch, bring back Sunday and enough free time for everyone.
The Lost Sunday is an imaginative new twist on old fairy-tales that shines a light on a very present-day problem: burnout and the quest for free time. For children, it's a colourful journey into a land of magic, filled with whimsical creatures, strange trials and lessons about kindness to all, yourself included. The grownups will see a second layer - a glimpse of hope: striking the perfect, delicate balance between work and relaxation.
What we dream of the most is a parent and child reading The Lost Sunday together ❤ and then start a useful and pleasant conversation about the value of self care.
The Lost Sunday first print run was super successfully funded on Kickstarter in the spring of 2021. The book was commercially available in October 2021. The funds allowed for a print run of 1000 English copies, out of which about 700 were available for sale.
