Ellen, the Vole and the Secret

Maria Frensborg, illustrated by Tomas Nilsson

Excitement, clever escapades and pranks in a delightful chapter book about Ellen, the Vole and their Not-wanting-to-grow-up Club.

Ellen and the Vole are best friends, neighbours and the only members of the Not-wanting-to-grow-up Club – a club for people who don’t want to grow up. One day they meet Ellen’s mysterious relative, Nelle, who says she knows what to do if you “don’t want to grow up”. Can it really be true… can there be answers to the Not-wanting-to-grow-up Club’s questions? Ellen and the Vole must find out if Nelle is telling the truth…

Maria Frensborg makes her debut with a warm and wonderfully funny story of everyday life, about disgusting cigarettes, secret adventures and a memory box containing everything that makes life worth living.

A chapter book that is diary-style daft, warm and humorous.
