At the webpage of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Tonje Glimmerdal:

"The tough girl Tonje Glimmerdal is the only child in Glimmerdal. She will soon be ten years old, and she lives by the motto 'speed and confidence'. Her best friend is called Gunnvald. He is one of the eldest people in Glimmerdalen and he can be difficult and stubborn. Tonje is so fond of him it makes her heart creak. He makes steering wheel toboggans for her, and on them she races from the tops and down the valley while she sings her heart out, and when she wants to talk, he always finds the time for it. And then he plays the violin, so that the whole of Glimmerdalen is filled with miracle music. Everybody in Glimmerdalen likes Tonje, save for the camping manager/owner Klaus. He does not like children at all and prohibits them from visiting his camping site. Other than that everything is fine and just as it should be."
