Getting All Tied UpHelena Bross, illustrated by Kadri Ilves
All Tied Up is the sixth, completely free-standing book about the two friends Axel and Omar who live in the same building. Warm and exciting stories with few and short lines of text, and simple words in capitals. Charming everyday drama when it is at its very best! Perfect for beginner readers.
Axel and Mum are in the shoe shop. Axel is trying on shoes. One pair are extra nice.
– But they have got shoelaces, says Mum. And it is hard to tie shoelaces.
– I shall practise, says Axel.
But Axel doesn’t have time to practise in the evening. And next day, when they are on an outing, his laces come undone! And laces are like snakes. They twist and turn and get tangled up. Luckily, Omar is waiting.
