Overview Kaffetorsken

The Lofoten fishing season is underway and everybody wants to catch this year’s coffee cod – a fish weighing over 30 kilos that will earn them a kilo of coffee. The sea’s no place for little kids, say the fishermen, but Tora just scoffs at that. Because she’s ten and can do absolutely anything. Or at least that’s what Mum tells her.

Tora sneaks off in the little boat and heads out to catch a coffee cod.

But the sea is wild and the obstacles are many.

A beautiful, fully illustrated story about brave girls, choppy seas and enormous cod.
