A tiny rat and her friend Wilbert are playing hide and seek. Despite being humongous, the rat cannot find Wilbert anywhere. A passing crocodile, with a mouth full of shiny teeth, offers the rat a helping hand. Together they search high and low, until eventually the rat spots Wilbert.

Some of his work can be read in English, Swedish, Danish, Slovenian, French, German, Polish, English, Norwegian and Icelandic.
