Vignette to chapter 10 "The Lobster Quadrille"
The Swedish text here refers to a böckling
to accommodate a Swedish pun,
whereas the original has a whiting.
But a böckling isn't a real species,
it's a "smoked Baltic herring".
The figure in the rowboat is Tove Jansson's invention.
I kindly ask you to read everything on the Title Page of this picture collection carefully.
