New Book: The Forgetful Fipka


Let it be said once and for all that although fipkas are not among the least forgetful, this is nevertheless an incredibly exciting book. It is full of forgetting and forgetting. Not due to distraction. No, not the least. Not because of stress or confusion. Absolutely not. But due to the fact that everything is being downgraded in favour of the curling iron out on the stove in the kitchen. This is the theme in the first half of the book. In the second half we hear about the Horse-Man-Greybeard; supposedly a creature who eats layer cake for breakfast with the same passion as when we switch on and off the lights when we were children.
