Lemen – fjellets hjerte
Published by Mangschou Forlag, 2020
The lemming is a small hamster, with a thick sausage-like body, with short legs, and tiny ears. It is easy to recognize as they have a very characteristic appearance, with yellowy-orange fur speckled with black spots on their heads and along their backs. During the “lemming years” the furious lemmings are everywhere in the mountains. There are millions. But suddenly they are all gone, and many years can pass before you see a lemming again. Why?

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?

What do the atomic bomb, the pill and the like button have in common? That’s right, they all changed the world around them. Just like the lightbulb, the clay pot cooler, antibiotics, the dishwasher, autotune, protheses and the bulletproof material Kevlar.
Through these stories we are given insights into how inventions are made, how ideas come to be and how these inventions can affect our lives.

Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon. Ellen MacArthur sailed across stormy, rocky seas the whole world over – all by herself. And no-one has ever been as far beneath the earth’s surface like Gennadij Samokhin. What drives a person to travel to where no man has ever been before? What makes them climb higher, dive deeper, and blaze a trail into a world that is often cold, wet and dangerous, without ever knowing whether they will make it back?
