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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This appealing chapter book has a distinctive setting, plenty of humor, and unusual emotional clarity.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Heartfelt and humorous.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Filled with both rollicking escapades and poignant moments, Parr’s notable tale portrays a young boy’s heartfelt appreciation of family and friends.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Strongly plotted, with larger changes in the lives of the families woven into Trille’s smaller-scope story.”

    Horn Book

  • “Delightful…fresh and fast paced. While readers will chuckle at the friends’ adventures—and marvel at their chutzpah—their mouths will also water at the frequency with which waffles, clearly a popular Norwegian treat, figure into the story. Children will relate to Trille’s anxiety about whether he is Lena’s best pal, a worry extinguished in a final, harrowing episode that, fortunately, ends well.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Luke Daniels zestfully narrates a story of the good-natured friendship between nine-year-old Trille Integard and his neighbor, Lena Liddg…In addition to skillfully capturing the kids, Daniels deftly portrays adults, especially enthusiastic Grandad…Daniels’ vivid description puts listeners on board…A gem of a listen for all ages.”
