This story is based on actual events that have
taken place every year in
Vestmannaeyjar from
times the oldest inhabitants can remember. The
story is
about the early life of a puffl ing and
the many adventures it encounters from
the
moment it breaks out of its egg until it is
rescued by children in the town and
returned to
the sea. The author of the story is Hilmir
Högnason, father of eight and electrician by
trade. Hilmar was born on 27th August 1923 in
Vestmannaeyjar, and this is
his second book. He
previously published an anthology of poetry
called ÊVatnsdals
Hilmir er og verður til.Ë
Hilmir is the son of farmer Högni Sigurðsson
from Vatnsdalur, Vestmannaeyjar, and Guðny
Magnúsdóttir from North Búðarholtshjáleiga in
the Landeyjar area.
Hilmir has lived in
Vestmannaeyjar all his life, with the exception
of the year he was
forced to fl ee his home due
to the volcanic eruption on Heimaey. Hilmir
rescued
puffl ings as a young boy and later
taught his own children to do the same.
