Author(s): Sally Astridge and Arne Norlin
Astrid thinks she is imagining the quiet boy who appears in her room in the middle of the night. He's called Tamati and lives in New Zealand. Astrid lives in Sweden. What's he doing here? And why does he keep turning up? Tamati tells Astrid they are time twins - children born at the exact same time - and his grandfather has shown him how to find her. Their lives couldn't be more different, but both have secrets they haven't been able to share with anyone else ... until now. Then the time twins realise that they might have come together for a reason and that there are ways they can help each other, even if they do live thousands of kilometres apart. Time Twins is an exciting cross-global story written by two authors living on either side of the earth about two children who are doing the same. First published in Swedish, this is the novel's New Zealand debut.
Sally Astridge lives in Nelson, New Zealand. She is a former teacher and this is her first children's book. Arne Norlin is one of Sweden's most loved children's writers and has pub-lished more than seventy titles. He lives in Stockholm but visits New Zealand every year.
