Waffle HeartAn unequal team of best friends, but they stick together through thick and thin
Trille and Lena are both nine years old and live in the small town Knert-Mathilde on the west coast of Norway. Trille lives together with his mother, father, his three siblings and his grandfather. He has lived there all his life. Lena and her mother have moved about a lot and are currently living in a house they have rented on Trille's family farm.
Trille would like to be Lena's best friend, and urges her to agree that he is. Lena, on the other hand, thinks they should stay just the way they are: good neighbors. A real go-getter, Lena has a lively imagination and is always bursting with new ideas. Trille thinks some of the things she gets up to are a bit scary.
The two children tuck into Auntie Grandma's heart-shaped waffles, which they think are the best in the world, save a horse from being slaughtered, and earn a little money by playing Silent Night on their recorders in the middle of summer! When Auntie Grandma dies and Lena has to move away, Trille is despondent.
But Lena runs away and makes her way back to Knert-Mathilde, so she can live with Trille and his family. After a dramatic rescue operation in which she is brought down from the mountains by helicopter, it is agreed that it will be best for Lena to remain in Knert-Mathilde while her mother completes her education in town. And even better, Lena is allowed to stay with Trille, her best friend!
