John Jensen and the Night Train

John Jensen is finally back after 10 years! This time
around every child’s favourite Tax Advisor is going to
Bergen on a conference. A town full of Bergeners. To
get there he has to travel on the night train. He will have
to sleep together with people he doesn’t know, pass
through unfamiliar places and go through dark tunnels.
The challenges are quickly piling up for our anxious
crocodile friend. The first three books about John Jensen
have turned into modern classics in Norway. We are
happy and proud to have him back.

“(…)if you like the crocodile who works
as a Tax Advisor and battles with issues we all recognize;
you won’t let him go so easily (…) the illustrations
contribute to creating the harmonious atmosphere that
characterizes these books. Reading about John Jensen actually slows down your heart rate.”
