Palle Poodle, a dog’s life

What three colors are magical? How will Rita Rabbit really get the poodle party started? Can you draw with a pair of scissors? Palle dog-swimming in Greece: how did that go? And is it true what Palle read, that it is actually dangerous to chew meat bones?

You can read all this and many other adventures with Palle Poodle and Rita Rabbit here. Palle Poodle was one of the popular stories of Anna Fiske’s award-winning comic magazine for children, Rabbel (Scribble). Here are the stories from Rabbel about Palle and Nina collected in a book.

"Palle Poodle is no obvious children's figure. He wears a black turtleneck, horn-rimmed glasses, and has a tendency to want to talk about culture with poodle friends. Palle Poodle is actually a hipster from around the millennium, and in this respect there are probably many children who can recognize their own father in this cultured vivant ¬– at least if it is a family with a subscription to Morgenbladet or Klassekampen (Norwegian intellectual newspapers) . ... Fiske is a master craftswoman. She is virtually alone in Norway in creating cartoons for children at this level. ... in other words, no reason not to introduce your kid to the cultural elite in dog disguise."
Walter Wehus, BT
