Piglet wants to play.

- "This piglet is coughing. Is the doctor not coming?" he yells and sits down outside the Foxes den. Fox puts on a long white frock and examines the patient. He has to use a sickness measurer and discovers that the condition is serious.
- "Bad news" says Fox. "Your urk seems to be out of order. It has to be removed."

But Piglet does not want to remove his urk, so he runs off. And Fox concocts a clever plan to get Piglet both sick and well again.

Spottyitis is the tenth book about Fox and Piglet.

"A wild and funny book that is just as great as the rest of the series. ...This is great art!"

"This book is a good example of the tradition of weirdly cute animals ... a mix of entanglement comedy and mellow art of living. With Rørvik you get a lot of comedy and even wilder play with words."

"Hurray for the tenth book about Fox and Piglet! This book is full of childish fun and fantastic concoctions. The story take the humor of both children and grown up seriously. The illustrations of Per Dybvig have great charm and adds to the layers and laughter og the story."
