The first impression - ingenious. Great graphics. Good layout. I will read the book with lots of fun.

Wow! Lots to read this holiday! It looks gorgeous. Are the drawings of the character creation Kids placeholders?

Looks great so far!

Page 79 to 82 might need some translation into English.

I also somehow missed examples how exaclty to roll the dice.
Maybe you could add some examples in the example scences.
Something like. 
Olle rolls 3 dice with 2,4 and 6 so he has 2 sucesses agains a difficulty agains 3.
Maybe I just did not find it. Was reading pretty quick :)

Looks like placeholder text in latin.

Good work, looks very nice indeed!  I really like the overall layout...

Just had a quick overlook at the pdf and, as you ask us to help with this, here are some things to be corrected:
  • Titles, Chapter 2: Things to do in the 80's (the apostrophe is misplaced)
  • Titles, Chapter 4: Attributes is written with 1 't' at the end
  • Titles, Chapter 8: 'The The kids and the campagin' should be 'The kids and the campaign'
  • Last pages of chapter 6: Lorem Ipsum-like text on all illustrations
  • The introduction texts of the 2 last chapters also look like lorem ipsum

Something I noticed while skimming through the PDF, all of the statements addressed to the player and player characters address them as "her" or "she". I'm assuming it will be something to the effect of "him/her"/"he/she" in the final copy?
