The Brothers Lionheart

@ Astrid Lindgren
(fantasy, childrens)

Scotty's big brother Jonathan tells him about Nangiyala, a land on the other side of the stars, where you go after you die. Because Scotty is little and afraid and he's sick and soon he'll die. "In Nangiyala you have adventures from morning to evening and at night, too. Because it's in Nangiyala that all sagas happen.", Jonathan tells Scotty. It sounds so good that Scotty doesn't want to be without Jonathan in Nangiyala, where together they will become the Brothers Lionheart.
