Synopsis
Most things seem very strange when Siv, 7, for the first time sleeps over at her new friend Cerisia’s. In a home that is very different to her own, Siv finds it strange and weird. With the help of two talkative and funny badger friends, who appear in the middle of the night, she has some wonderful adventures that help her embrace differences and find herself.

Sleeping over
Do you remember the first time you slept over at a friend’s house? The whole world shifted a bit. Everything you thought was normal turned out to be not the same. The smells, the sheets, the food, the furniture, the conversations. Maybe it was your first meeting with something Really Different.

SIV SOVER VILSE is a story about this meeting, how it can turn your world upside down, but also be very exciting. An adventure that you carry with you for the rest of your life.

It is a story about a magical place where anything can happen. Where some animals can talk and wear red wellington boots. Where you suddenly discover that you can read. Where the wallpapers can change patterns. Where you unexpectedly change size. Where all the snowflakes are different, but equally beautiful.
