The Norwegian children’s story is about two small tooth trolls, Karius (caries) and Baktus (bacteria), that live inside cavities in the teeth of a boy named Jens. They have a very good life, especially when Jens eats white bread with syrup and fails to brush his teeth afterwards. Eventually their homes, the cavities, are destroyed by a dentist and they are rinsed out of Jens’ mouth through proper dental care.
The Norwegian children’s novel written and illustrated by Thorbjorn Egner, “Karius and Baktus”, is a humorous and great way to teach children about the importance of good oral care. We believe educational experiences should happen beyond the four walls of a classroom and should reach children and their families at home or in the community.
The Norwegian Cultural Center is bringing this well-known pedagogical story, loved by generations of Scandinavians, to Singapore and for the first time to the world, in Mandarin.
This is a SCCC Venue Partnership Scheme Event.
