    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.

    Speed and self-confidence, that’s Astrid’s motto. Nicknamed “the little thunderbolt,” she loves to spend her days racing down the hillside on her sled, singing loudly as she goes, and visiting Gunnvald, her grumpy, septuagenarian best friend and godfather, who makes hot chocolate from real chocolate bars. She just wishes there were other children to share her hair-raising adventures with. But Astrid’s world is about to be turned upside down by two startling arrivals to the village of Glimmerdal: first a new family, then a mysterious, towering woman who everyone seems to know.

    Tonje er ligesom Pippi Langstrømpe en krudtugle og vokser op som eneste barn i Glimmerdalen. Hendes bedsteven er den 74-årige spillemand Gunnvald. Han bygger en ratkælk, så Tonje kan suse hele vejen ned til fjorden, og han spiller violin så Glimmerdalen fyldes af mirakelmusik, men han har en hemmelighed, der sætter deres venskab på en alvorlig prøve.

    En ny fodboldtræner formørker den tolvårige Lena Lids målmandsliv. I nabohuset spekulerer Theo på, hvordan han skal gøre indtryk på den nye pige i klassen. Og på havet jagter farfar de store fisk, uden at bekymre sig om at han er ved at blive gammel. Dette år må Lena, Theo og farfar kæmpe hårdt, både med sig selv og naturkræfterne. For hvad skal man gøre, når alt er modvind, og ingen forstår sig på det, man virkelig kan? Man skal i hvert fald ikke give op. Som Lena Lid siger i pressede situationer: Nu må I saftsuseme vågne lidt op derude!

    Vaffelhjerte er en bog om venskabet mellem Theo og Lena. Lena er tynd og har grønne øjne og syv fregner på næsen. Theos farfar plejer at sige, at hun æder som en hest og ligner en cykel. Theo, eller Theobald Rodrik som han egentlig hedder, og Lena bor i den lille by Knald-Mathilde, som farfaren kalder ’vores kongerige’. De er naboer, går i samme klasse og er fulde af gode idéer og skarnsstreger.
