Overview Godtegrisen

It's obvious that pigs can like sweeties too. And obviously a boy and a little sweetiepig can become best friends. That's what happens to Kim and the pig. Kim's pig is quite special, but they have to take care the pig is not discovered, because grown-ups don't like having pigs in the house. What if they couldn't be together any more? Kim wants them to be together for ever.

Godtegrisen is a lavishly imaginative picture-book about a close friendship outside the pigsty. This is Line Halsnes' second picture-book, which she has both written and illustrated herself.

Reviews Godtegrisen

Svinaktig moro

"[Illustrasjonene] er like livlige som historien, fulle av bevegelse, kontraster, overdrivelser og kraftige farger. De kan minne om karikaturer, og har tegneserieelementer som snakkebobler og lydeffekter, som forsterker det uhøytidelige og humoristiske uttrykket. […] en svært gjennomført bildebok, som utnytter formatet godt."

Marie L. Kleve, Dagbladet
