Sara Olausson has published autobiographical and satirical adult comics but also the children’s series »Loranga, Masarin and Dartanjang« inspired by Barbro Lindgren’s children’s books. Now she releases the first part of the story about Felicia, the Romanian beggar women who became her friend. Felicia’s story is told through Sara Olausson’s cartoon drawings.
This collaboration is the result of hours of laughter and tears, both in Sweden and Romania. Sara and Felicia became friends in October 2013, communicating across a language barrier via single words and body language, then using translation software, and finally with the help of a Romanian-Swede acting as interpreter. In this story, it is Felicia’s voice you hear.
