Wheaskers

Fox and Piglet are two friends with great charm!

In Wheaskers, Fox and Piglet get two hairs from The Cow. She tells them that these are real wheaskers, the kind they used in old times to tell the weather. Fox starts a new career as a meteorologist, and soon the sillywinkles and others come to him to hear news about the weather. Everything goes well, as long as the wetaher is nice. But then the wheaskers are ruined, a Swedish sillywinkle berry picking get the wrong forecast, and thunder and lightning cause both chaos and dread. But Fox has, as always, a new plan!

With great humour in both story and illustration, the books about Fox and Piglet appeal to grown ups just as much as the younger readers.

"Remarkably funny! After this anything else is straight forward and boring."
ADRESSEAVISEN

"Bjørn F. Rørvik and Per Dybvigs books about Fox and Piglet, and the rare animals they meet on their path, must be something of the most precious that is published in Norway these days."
HAMAR ARBEIDERBLAD

"Last years book, Café Tip of the Tail, was a wonderful acquaintance. The joy is if possible even greater this year."
