Romanen Fuglene fra 1957, der regnes for Vesaas´ mesterværk, handler om Mattis, tusten eller tossen, ham der ikke er som de andre, men som oplever verden på en intuitiv måde, hvor alting får karakter af hemmelighedsfulde tegn. Han oplever det som et lille mirakel, når der kommer et sneppetræk over huset. Han kan tyde fuglenes sprog, sneppen skriver små breve til ham med næb og kløer, og Mattis stiller livets store spørgsmål, som ingen kan svare på. I det lille bygdesamfund er Mattis ringeagtet og ensom. Han kan ikke passe et arbejde og bor sammen med sin søster, Hege, som forsørger dem ved at strikke trøjer. Hans største triumf oplever han, da to piger samler ham op på en holm i søen, hvor han har søgt tilflugt, fordi hans plimsoller af en båd har taget vand ind. Da han ror de to ind til købmanden, kan han vise de lokale, at han godt kan være sammen med nogen, som respekterer ham, som den han er. En dag får Hege den idé, at Mattis kan være færgemand og ro folk over søen. Og han ror frem og tilbage, men der er ikke en sjæl at se, før skovhuggeren Jørgen en dag dukker op. Det ender med, at skovhuggeren flytter ind i deres lille hus, og Hege blomstrer op, mens Mattis føler sig mere udenfor end nogensinde. En dag tager han ud på søen, han har en plan og vil udfordre skæbnen. Please note: This audiobook is in Danish. 1. Danish.

Sir William´s story: Do you know what´s the best thing about being a space trash pilot? You may think that it´s blowing up floating debris around the planet, which is great, but for me, I got to wear my slippers to work.But life changes, and I was sent on a mission, and I traded slippers for boots. I didn´t want to go. But I did, and I killed this space monster who was eating my home planet, Fidea, and people seemed to like that. So, I became a ´´sir”. Now, I´ve been assigned to watch over this teenage Earthling named Mac.I have no idea why.Mac´s side of it: My life was too weird. Mom had just died. I had to go live with my Aunt Maddy and my seven-year-old cousin who twirled everywhere she went. I had to accept that my cousin is a twirler. I had a bully, Rhett, who had a friend, Myron the Moron, who liked to pick me up and toss me around. And I seriously liked Rhett´s sister, Rani.My dad, a wildlife photographer, saw a video on YouTube about terror birds not being extinct. You guessed it, he took off to take their picture.Like I said, my life is weird. But then I met Sir William and life went to a level of weirdness that defies description. He has these magical goggles. You put them on and you´re transported to wherever ´´you expect to be.” Of course, we had to go save Dad from these flesh-ripping birds, who were not extinct, just very hungry. The goggles came in handy.But that´s not the end of the weirdness. It turns out that I´m not a normal Earth teenager. It seems that I have powers. And that, on Fidea, I am known as ´´The Mac”.Weirdness is having a picnic in my world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles Hubbell.
