“The Terrifying Building in Eyeville” is a digital children’s book about a peaceful little town named Eyeville.
One dark and storm night, a truck drives through the city, and, by accident, “something” falls out of the cargo hold and lands right in front of Mr. Nice’s front door.
It turns out to be a strange person named Kanser, who loves to build. He quickly gets to work building in Mr. Nice’s house and is basically impossible to stop.
Kanser builds and builds, and after a short time, his dreadful building has spread to every corner of the town.
Will the residents of Eyeville be able to stop Mr. Kanser before his terrifying building ruins the whole town?
The story is written by Joel Grøndrup. Illustrations by Dawid Woldu and Tomek Ruducha.
The story is intended for children ages 4 years and up. The story can either be listened to or read.
