Bjørn F. Rørvik
The Goblins Association

The Goblin Association (Nisseforeningen) is the seventh picture book about Fox and Piglet. Papp the farty goblin has joined an association, "Goblins without Borders". He’s a little bit anxious about his first meeting, and would like Fox and Piglet to go with him, even though they aren’t goblins. The meeting doesn’t go quite as Papp the fool had thought. But after a while, he is very satisfied, especially after he wins a lovely prize. The book is absurd and realistic and, quite simply, wonderful!

Bjørn F. Rørvik and Per Dybvig have created a fantastic universe where Fox and Piglet are in the centre. They received the Norwegian Ministry of Arts and Science picture book award for their books about Fox and Piglet in 2005.
