Lena is Trille's best friend, even if she is a girl. And there is never an ordinary day when you've got a best friend like Lena.
Hardly a day passes without Trille and Lena inventing some kind of adventure that often ends in trouble. Whether it's coaxing a cow onto a boat or tobogganing down the steepest and iciest hill with a chicken, there is always a thrill - and sometimes an injury - to be had. Trille loves to share everything with Lena, even Auntie Granny's waffles, which make everything just perfect. But when Lena has to move away, and Auntie Granny leaves the world, it sometimes seems nothing will ever be right again.
The warmth of friendship and the support of family suffuses this novel, proving that when times are tough, a little taste of sweetness can make all the difference.
