Lena is Trille's best friend. Despite not knowing if he is Lena’s best friend, the two neighbors cause all sorts of chaos in their small town. From making a rope bridge between their houses to using Uncle Tor's fishing boat to recreate Noah's Ark, it isn't a normal day in Mathildewick Cove without Trille and Lena getting into some sort of trouble. Luckily for them, there's no amount of trouble Auntie Granny's waffles can't fix. Trille is devastated when he finds out Lena and her mom are moving across the fjord. When Lena runs away from her mom and back to Mathildewick Cove, Trille hopes that means he is Lena’s best friend too—but he doesn’t dare ask her. It isn’t until Lena is injured in a fire that she tells Trille he’s her best friend too. Everything quickly returns to normal in Mathildewick Cove, but Trille finally knows he has a best friend.
