Svein and His Rat – the Sewer Outing

Per Dybvig, Marit Nicolaysen

Bestselling and award-winning middle grade series sold more than 300.000 copies in Norway!

It is summer, it is hot, and the Holiday Club is going on an outing a little out of the ordinary; they are going to visit the huge underground sewer system. Already on the bus, Svein gets nauseous, on down in the sewer, it stinks! It’s dripping from the ceiling, and dead rats are floating past. Svein thinks about his hooded rat Havorsen back home, who is his best friend. Did he remember to close the cage?

This is the first book of the popular series about Svein and his pet rat Halvorsen, which has been a huge success both in Norway and abroad.
