DUSTEFJERTEN - dei tre første forteljingane - Cappelen Damms Gull
The small country by the creek is a place for small happenings and great thoughts - where water in the creek is the fastest there is, and every day life becomes a party whenever something happens. Usually Featherfart (Dustefjerten) throws ploppy stones into the creek and talk to the duckling. The Holesnoop (Holesnusken) chops wood. Bunfarts (Bollefisen) has wet feet, and always dreams about something sweet to eat. The ruskfox (Kavringreven) bakes rusks. Oktava sings her songs and maybe dreams of a really cool theatre. And far into the woods, the mountainhen is warming a stone.
In this book you find the three first books about Sillyfart and his neighbours and friends.
The stories about Dustefjerten are loved by generations of Norwegian children. The books have also been sold to The Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Serbia and The Ukraine.
