Nova and Simon are bored. The twins should be enjoying their summer break, but they are far from amused and figure they have to come up with something to do.
That day they decide to open a "helper agency" just to do something.. Nova initially wanted a detective agency, but as Simon felt that was too dangerous they settled on a helper agency, which will tackle every type of problem.
The first book is "The Missing Unicorn", where the twins have to help a little gnome find his missing pet.

"In the best possible fairytale-style, with lots of amazing creatures, the author brings on a journey into a fairytale forest. The two main characters, Nova and Simon, complement each other well in terms of personalities. One being more impulsive and the other one more of a theoretical ponderer.
With his non-complicated, everyday language, Daniel Edfelt tells the story of "The missing unicorn" in a warm, caring and detailed fashion, which makes it easy for the reader to make up his/her own mental images.
The main characters and the different creatures involved in this case are all described in great detail and it is easy to imagine what they must be like when they make an appearance in the manuscript.
Mats Minnhagen's black-and-white illustrations match the story beautifully. Should you wish to read aloud, this book lends itself well, as do the next the next three adventures with these twins."
