Overview Prikkesyken

Piglet wants to play.

- "This piglet is coughing. Is the doctor not coming?" he yells and sits down outside the Foxes den. Fox puts on a long white frock and examines the patient. He has to use a sickness measurer and discovers that the condition is serious.
- "Bad news" says Fox. "Your urk seems to be out of order. It has to be removed."

But Piglet does not want to remove his urk, so he runs off. And Fox concocts a clever plan to get Piglet both sick and well again.

This is the tenth book about Fox and Piglet.

"A wild and funny book that is just as great as the rest of the series. ...This is great art!"
NRK P2

"This book is a good example of the tradition of weirdly cute animals ... a mix of entanglement comedy and mellow art of living. With Rørvik you get a lot of comedy and even wilder play with words."
AFTENPOSTEN

"Hurray for the tenth book about Fox and Piglet! This book is full of childish fun and fantastic concoctions. The story take the humor of both children and grown up seriously. The illustrations of Per Dybvig have great charm and adds to the layers and laughter og the story."

Reviews from Prikkesyken

Lattervekkende for de minste

”(…) en vill og morsom bok som ikke gjør skam på en fantastisk bokserie (…)Dette er stor kunst! (…) Det gjør godt å lese en tekst for barn der presisjonsnivået og nyanserikdommen er så velutviklet. Jeg sier - uten å betenke meg noe særlig om - Ja takk til ti nye bøker!”Anne Cathrine Straume, NRK P2
"Bøkene faller fint inn i tradisjonen av pussigsøte dyr (...) en blanding av forviklingskomikk og lun livskunst. Hos Rørvik er det mest komikk og enda mer vilter språklek".Morten Haugen, Aftenposten
“Hurra for bok nummer ti om Reven og Grisungen! (…) full av barnslige morsomheter og fantastiske påfunn. Fortellingen tar både barns og voksnes humor på alvor. Per Dybvigs strek er sjarmerende og tilfører historien både flere lag og ekstra latteranfall. Utgis samtidig som lydbok lest av forfatteren selv. Anbefales alle som liker å le fra 3 år og oppover."Mamma nr 6, 2010
