A children’s book by Alexander Rybak

Alexander Rybak’s first children’s book Trolle og den Magiske Fela“, released on September 19th 2015, by the Norwegian publisher Cappelen Damm.



Trolle is not like everyone else. He lacks a tail, and that is something the other trolls never let him forget. They tease and bother him all day long. One day,  Trolle finds a magic violin that can change everything. But the magic fiddle does not only bring good things and soon, Trolle finds himself in big trouble.  That’s when the human child Alva appears, showing Trolle the power of true friendship. Trolle and the magic fiddle is an adventure about daring to be different, and to accept what is different in others. It is a tale of a friendship that overcomes everything – even the darkest magic of the forest!
