Helene Nagelhus
Emma and Isak - Treasure Hunts and Dirty Tricks

Twins Emma and Isak are nine years old. They have a two-year-old brother, a mom and dad, a grandmother in the house next door, and they live on Eiktun farm. Emma loves to play soccer, and she has two rabbits. Isak wants a dog more than anything else in the world. But Mom is scared of dogs, so there's no farm dog at Eiktun.

Life at Eiktun is full of adventures and everyday pleasures. Emma and Isak never get bored. They help out in Mom's café, they rescue a baby fox, they build a cable car with Uncle Knut and they reveal something quite illegal!

Over the course of a year, we get to follow the twins around in the forest and mountains, on the farm and in the village. We learn just what it's like to live on a farm, be nine years old and have a twin!

Helen Nagelhus debuts with great story-telling abilities, and she's written an incredibly charming and recognizable story.
