The third and last adventure of Twigson and Junior
The Final part of the Twigson trilogy is now ready for Delivery: Twigson and Karoline have got a baby boy and could not be happier. Mom and Dad are worried about Junior, because he still hasn’t made any real friends. Junior doesn’t care. He doesn’t like the other boys in the street anyway. And he has Twigson. They make a pact not to have any other friends. Forever! But one day Twigson disappears without a trace...

Short Synopsis
Everything good comes to an end, but every ending is also the beginning of something new. Junior and his family move to the city and Twigson and Karoline are now the proud and happy parents of a son - Mini-Twigson.

But Mom and Dad are worried about Junior. They have been living there for a couple of months, and he still hasn't made any new friends. Junior doesn't care. He doesn't like the other boys in the street, especially not the bully Gunnar. And besides, he has Twigson. They make a pact not to have any other friends. Forever! But one day Twigson disappears without a trace.

Sometimes when you search for something, you end up finding something completely else. The same applies to Junior. And when Twigson is in trouble, Junior has to use his imagination and untraditional methods to help him. Because Twigson is not just a wood stick, root or twig - he's a friend.
