Overview Skogens konge

In this book you find everything you ever wanted to know about the moose!

You probably know that the moose is known as the King of the Forest. But did you know that elks shut their eyes if you scratch them behind the ears, that their coats smell of horse and that they’re actually pretty easy to tame? In King of the Forest, you can not only read about how moose live and what they eat, but also about what moose milk tastes like and why the mooses’ stomach produces 400 litres of gas per day. You can even learn how to call a moose.

Author and illustrator Line Halsnes has met Norwegian, Swedish and Russian moose. She has dived into all the available books about moose, spoken to moose researchers and other experts – and she has travelled deep into Russia to visit a proper moose farm. In this colourful, playful book, she shares her knowledge and her top moose tips with you.

Bli glad i naturen 27.03.2021

Med lett språk, humoristiske innfallsvinklar og rause illustrasjonar, er det lett å følgje forfattaren når ho tek oss igjennom elgen sine særtrekk og levemåtar.

Fin å lesa for store og små i lag.
