Arne Svingen and Henry Bronken (ill.)

The Impossible Bike

Bodrik can stand on one leg. He has paddled a kayak. He has once balanced for over two seconds on a narrow plank. But he can’t ride a bike. So it’s naturally totally uncool to get a bike as a birthday present.

This marks the start of a completely new, whacky and wonderfully absurd series from Arne Svingen for young kids at primary school: ‘Svingen’s Mad World’ – a parallel humorous series to the already well-established thriller series ‘Svingen’s Dark World’.

The books deal with everything that is crazy and funny: stupid teachers, impossible bikes, insane trips to the south – and scallywags in general.
