Bjørn F. Rørvik
The Wafflefish

Fox and Piglet have borrowed a book about fish, with pictures ofall sorts of fish and sea creatures. Some of the fish look very funny, for example the Gurglefish. Others look very nasty to eat, suchas the Potatomouth, which is U.N.O.P – Unusually Nasty On Pizza. But there are also some which look remarkably good, and most tempting of all is the Wafflefish.

Piglet fancies a wafflefish for dinner. So the two friends go on a fishing trip – but there may be more than wafflefish lurking in the deep.

The Wafflefish (Vaffelfisken) is the twelfth book about Fox and Piglet. Here again Rørvik and Dybvig are in top form, as they have been right from their very first book, twenty years ago.

'The Wafflefish is good storytelling inspired by adventure, with funny animals given human attributes and weaknesses. This is a book that surprises, that we laugh at and grow fond of. In short: Quality fun for little ones.'

'A fresh and fanciful fishy story which will delight readers of all ages.'
