Pitbull-Terje Runs Amok

Endre Lund Eriksen

Bestselling and award-winning middle grade series!

A brisk, funny, engaging and rather touching story about a somewhat strange friendship. We are introduced to Jim, and his two friends Kurt and Roger. Jim’s mother suffers from anxiety, but it’s alright because they can joke about it. Sometime’s it all gets a little overwhelming for Jim though, and he retreats to his secret bunker. One day a new boy joins their class, a surly sort of lad who calls himself Pitbull-Terje. He decides that he and Jim are going to be best friends: “If not, I’ll beat you up,” he says menacingly.

The movie based on the book was very popular, and Endre Lund Eriksen received the Amanda Awardfor the best movie for Children and Young Adults in 2006.
