Familien Schwindel

En helt vanlig familie. Eller ...?
Pris 279,00

Herr og fru Schwindel er akkurat som deg og meg: De bor i et koselig hus (i Teddington), de har jobb (av typen å lage vitser til smellbonboner) og de er glade i en god latter. Bare én liten ting gjør dem annerledes: De er hyener. Det stemmer – de har pels, litt større ører enn vanlig, haler som de dytter ned i buksene sine, og de ler veldig, veldig høyt.

Inntil nå har familien Schwindel greid å holde situasjonen under kontroll, til og med etter at ungene Bob og Betty kom til verden. Men den nysgjerrige naboen herr Hufferson aner ugler (eller hyener, kanskje?) i mosen. En utflukt til den lokale dyrehagen ender i et kupp som er så genialt og vanvittig at hemmeligheten deres kanskje vil bli avslørt. Hva kommer naboene til å tro?

"En bok med fantastisk plot, og illustrasjoner som gnistrer av overskudd. Forfriskende original, og genuint morsom.» (Kirkus, starred review)

"Morsom og smart med en herlig dose skakk humor. Barn vil elske nonsens-skråblikket på vårt moderne liv, og illustrasjonene er kostelige." (The Bookseller)

"Et lykketreff av en bok!" (Telegraph, Best Holiday Reading for Kids)

"Humoren er genial, men under den ligger noe minst like betydningsfullt: Et varmt budskap om toleranse for det som er annerledes. Lesefesten blir ikke mindre av de utrolige illustrasjonene" (Daily Mail

«Fantastisk slapstick-humor, men også en fortelling om menneskelige ulikheter. Fans av Roald Dahl vil finne mye å glede seg over her.» (School Library Journal)
«Dyrene er blant oss! For en fantastisk bok. Barn vil rulle rundt på gulvet i ren fryd, mens de voksne himler med øynene over den gjenkjennelige, menneskelige dårskap.» (Fay Weldon)

"Denne underholdende fortellingen vil få leserne til å le høyt. Et supert valg for lesevegrere og fans av serier som Kaptein Supertruse." (Booklist)
