My name is Ella, I'm in first grade. We have a nice class and a nice teacher.. Or had because our teacher has been a bit nervous lately...
Today, Ella is in grade two and a half and she has been on an adventure in the books since 1995. Ella and the friends - series is about school and everything in the world from Ella's perspective. The humour in the books works on both children and adults despite of their nationality.
Humour is like a language that readers understand no matter what age they are. The special feature of the books is that they unite children and parents, students and teachers.
The books have been translated into ten different languages. An Ella - book has been the children's book of the year both in Norway and Russia. In Germany, Ella-books have sold approximately 500 000 copies.
In 2014 the Ella-series are renewing. The texts will be even easier to read and the books will be illustrated with Mervi Lindman's amazing and absolutely hilarious pictures.
