One day, independently of each other, both Ole and Siri come across three very bewildering “twins” dressed in kimonos. The three give each of the children a parcel. Both unwrap their present at home and discover a small, blue and pink-striped box with a large red button inside. The box is accompanied by a small card with the words: Please do not press! Of course, they both find it very hard to keep their fingers from pressing the button straight away – but Siri manages to resist the temptation, and so does Ole. On the following day, Siri’s teacher sets the class the task of splitting into twos and preparing a talk – and who should end up working together on the project than Siri and Ole? When they meet up at home to work on their talk, they notice that they have both been given one of the weird boxes with a button they are for some reason not supposed to press. Siri rings up her best friend, Ivana, who immediately joins them. What can these strange boxes possibly mean? But then bubbly Ivana suddenly grabs both boxes … and presses!
