Abstract
The aim of this Bachelor thesis was to investigate how depression is portrayed in children's picture books regarding normality, gender and motherhood. The study was implemented using Narrative Method and is based on four picture books written in Swedish. Our study shows that depression is portrayed as something divergent and something that prevents people from functioning in their daily life and thus affects the character's ability to care for their children’s physical and psychological needs. Depression is furthermore depicted as a problem occurring mainly to female characters and that female characters are more affected by depression and its side effects than male characters.
