Thorbjørn Egner (1912-1990)

When the Robbers Came to Cardamom Town

Cardamom Town is a somewhat different town than we are used to. Here we meet both donkeys and camels in the streets – and maybe even a lion? The head of police Bastian is keeping the town safe and sound, but does not like to arrest anyone. Old and wise Tobias in the tower is predicting the weather, and Auntie Sophie is taking care of little Camomile. Syversen is driving the tram between the town’s two stops while he is singing for the passengers. But be aware! Just outside Cardamom the three robbers called Kasper, Jesper and Jonathan live!
