This is the first volume in a new series of picture books by Tore Renberg and Øyvind Torseter.
Ine and Hasse are sister and brother. Ine is the older one and can fix everything. Hasse doesn’t say much, only «yes» or «tractor». They are going to cut down a tree in the forest and Ine carries the axe, of course. Soon, all the forest animals turn up to find out what’s going on. The text is playful and charming, with overtones of jingles. The beautiful illustrations are based on cut-and-fold technique. One of the most exciting picture books in 2010!
Gi gass, Ine received the Ministry of Culture’s Award for Best Picture Book 2010.
‘Perfect! … A beautiful and clever picture book. … Words and illustrations are in close dialogue throughout the book. The style, both verbal and visual, is innovative, poetic, playful. Renberg/Torseter make a good team…’
