About the book

Norbert Fatnoggin is unbearable. With his terrible mistrust, he tyrannises all other animals in Africa. Where ever someone just wants to have some fun Norbert suspects treason and conspiracy. What can be done? The other animals have no idea – only Karlchen Klammerzeh, the oxpecker, has one. But can it be that the solution is to build the arrogant rhinoceros a memorial after all he has done?
