Publisher's Summary

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.

very fun!

We loved this heartfelt and hilarious book. Note: one young character does frequently call others "idiot" and there's plenty of bathroom humor. If that doesn't bother you, you'll love this book.

charming childhood story.

As usual it took me a minute to appreciate the narrator; but once the story was over I wanted to know what else he has read. This story is a classic and mischievous tale of childhood. Really lovely to listen to.

Great narration!

I listened to this with my 11- and 8-year olds, and we all loved this book! I had started to read it myself, but the audiobook is so much better! We laughed and cried throughout—highly recommend!!

my 7 year old boy and I LOVED this book!

laughter and tears. great audio book with great narration! although, i would have loved the dads voice a little less like the grandpa's. we enjoyed all throughout the day.
I also had two other younger boys that enjoyed in bits and retained parts that they were present for, but definitely age appropriate for a 7 year old and up.

grandchildren loved this book

We had a two day trip in our car with our 6 and 8 year old grandchildren, and they listened to this book 3 times! It was lively and entertaining. The stories were captivating, and kept everyone, including grandpa, occupied!!
