The Vikings came from the Sea, a part of the world the inhabitants of Europe thought to be endless and impassable. From the 9th to the 11th century, Viking ships landed on almost every shore in the Western world.

Cover of "The Art of Hiding – Disguise in Nature"

Dyr som gjemmer seg
Published by Kagge, 2020

This book is all about animals that are specialists in hiding away. There’s a spider in Asia that imitates a butterfly and a fish swimming in the Amazon that looks like a leaf. There are animals that pretend to be something very different from what they actually are – an insect assassin that imitates a swarm of ants by sticking a pile of dead ants on its back and a little frog that pretends to be bird poo. There are also incredible animals that can change their disguise, like the peacock flounder: when a scientist put it on a chessboard, black and white checks appeared on its skin! And did you know there’s an octopus that can copy 15 different animals?
