Thorbjørn Egner

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.’
TORDIS ØRJASÆTER on Egner’s authorship
