Selma Lønning Aarø
Milla Saves the Amazon

When your best friend suddenly finds a new friend…

Milla is ill and has to stay home from school. She isn’t very good at it, she likes to be where it’s all happening! Her best friend Filla comes to visit but one day he doesn’t turn up – because he’s found a new friend. Naja, the new girl in class, wants to be a rainforest scientist, just like Milla. And Milla doesn’t like that! She needs to get better and get back to school so she can show this new girl who knows best when it comes to the Amazon! Because the Amazon is burning – and it needs help.

Milla Saves the Amazon fits neatly into Selma Lønning Aarø and Tiril Valeur’s charming hit trilogy about Milla. Climate and conservation play a major role in this delightful tale of friendship and jealousy.
