Tore Renberg

Step On It, Ine

Illustrated by Øyvind Torseter.

This is the first volume in a series of picture books by Tore Renberg and Øyvind Torseter. Ine and Hasse are brother and sister. Ine is the older one and can fix everything. Hasse doesn't say much, only «yes» or «tractor». They are going to cut down a tree in the forest and Ine carries the axe, of course. Soon, all the forest animals turn up to find out what's going on.

The text is playful and charming, with overtones of jingles. The beautiful illustrations are based on cut-and-fold technique.
