Front Page Story
(Etusivun juttu)


This is how the newspapers were made!

Inside the offices of a big newspaper like The Snooper – and out on the streets with the reporters, there is no shortage of excitement and rush before the day’s edition can be put to bed and the presses can start running. An incredible number of stories big and small, at home and in far-flung corners of the world, come in to the paper’s offices every day. Gradually it all comes together, the paper takes shape, and finally it is delivered to homes and newsagents in the early hours of the next morning.

Join the trusty photographer Timppa and Mauri’s other newshounds and learn how Timppa cracks the big story of the day and returns King Leo’s stolen crown. There are thrills and laughs galore, as in all the Kunnas books, but also a bumper amount of facts – Mauri Kunnas has worked as a cartoonist for several newspapers during his career and he has clearly kept his eyes open…
