Trille knows one thing for sure: his great aunt makes the world's best waffles. He is sure, too, that Knert-Mathilde is a wonderful place to live - and that his neighbour, Lena Lid, is his best friend. But he is anything but sure that he is her best friend.
In this book we follow the escapades of two inventive nine-year-olds through a whole tumultuous year.
Trille and Lena know all too well how to create a rumpus and keep things humming. But in between all the frolicking and laughter Trille reveals the sadder and more sombre aspects of his nine-year-old life, and of his fear of losing those he loves. A charming and humorous début work.
