Two of Everything
Two of EverythingRose Lagercrantz, illustrated by Rebecka Lagercrantz
An unforgettable story with a great deal of warmth about two children’s friendship in a difficult time. In the little Transylvanian town there are two of everything. Two rivers, two main streets, two graveyards, and two friends who run faster than all the others. Eli runs to get away from the vampires his brother has told him about and Luli runs to keep up with Eli. Every day Eli gives his whole lunchbox to Luli, because her household is poor and there is nobody to make sandwiches for her. Eli and Luli are always together until the day when Luli and her sister have to travel to America. Their father is already there to try and find a better life for them. Luli promises to write but no letters come. It is the beginning of the Second World War. And times get harder and more dangerous, especially for Jewish people.
