Helena Bross, illustrated by Kadri Ilves

Axel is going to a sleepover at Omar’s. It’s going to be such fun! They lie next to each other and talk, but after a while Omar doesn’t answer any more. He’s asleep.

It’s dark and the bed feels a bit strange. Axel gets worried, he hasn’t said goodnight to his mummy and daddy! But fortunately there is a simple solution.

“Number 1 Sun Street” is a series of very easy-to-read books about the friends Axel and Omar who live in the same building. Affectionate and exciting stories with a few short sentences and simple words in capital letters. Charming everyday drama at its very best. Perfect for new readers!

“Sleepover” is the eighth stand-alone part of the series. You can also read: “New friends”, “The hundred-pound note”, “The police are coming!”, “What will teacher say?”, “Swimming lessons”, “A knot in the end” and “Whose cat?” The books form part of the “Extra easy to read” series.

“… the books are of a high literary quality/ … / Kadri Ilves’ illustrations are clear and portray various familiar environments with great charm.” Peter Grönborg, Borås Tidning

“With a text of just two to three short sentences per spread Helena Bross creates just the right level of excitement for seven-year-olds, at the same time as she manages to formulate small ethical/moral issues to think about after reading them.” Anna-Mari Tammerman, Uppsala Nya tidning
