Overview Folk og røvere i Kardemomme by
Cardamom Town is a somewhat different town than we are used to. Here we meet both donkeys and camels in the streets – and maybe even a lion? The head of police Bastian is keeping the town safe and sound, but does not like to arrest anyone. Old and wise Tobias in the tower is predicting the weather, and Auntie Sophie is taking care of little Camomile. Syversen is driving the tram between the town’s two stops while he is singing for the passengers. But be aware! Just outside Cardamom the three robbers called Kasper, Jesper and Jonathan live!

Author Thorbjørn Egner

Come along and join us in the fantastic world of Thorbjørn Egner!

No other books have left such an impression on children growing up in Norway as these books have; the songs, the texts and the characters have become national institutions. And because Thorbjørn Egner was both the illustrator and the writer, the relationship between the pictures and texts is bound in a very special way.

Very few authors get closer to the child’s imagination than Egner does. Caries and Bacties has also been immortalized in Ivo Caprino’s puppet film, and a full-scale Cardamom Town has been built at Kristiansand Zoo. Not only are Egner’s stories performed on stage in many countries, his books have, to date, been translated into 20 languages. And despite being published more than 50 years ago, they are still as popular as ever.

THORBJØRN EGNER'S BOOKS ARE SOLD TO: BELGIUM, BULGARIA, CHINA, DENMARK, ESTONIA, FAROE ISLANDS, FINLAND, FRANCE, GEORGIA, GERMANY, HUNGARY, ICELAND, INDIA, ISRAEL, ITALY, JAPAN, LATVIA, POLAND, REPUBLIC OF KOREA, ROMANIA, RUSSIA, SRI LANKA, SWEDEN, THE NETHERLANDS, TURKEY, UNITED KINGDOM AND THE UNITED STATES.


‘The brilliance of Egner comes from his ability to tell his stories in such a way that children can understand and fantasize about them. The fantastic and adventurous tales are stamped with a naïve and authentic label.’
