Emma has the prettiest mum in the world, the best mum in the world. But sometimes Mum just lies there on the sofa and is strange and scared and sad. Then she can’t be bothered to do anything and the sun is gone. Her hair is full of waves and curls. It must be difficult being able to think with so many curls, Emma thinks and gets a brush from the drawer. Emma brushes and brushes, but the hair is really tangled and Emma has to get right down into the hair, in there where wild and dangerous creatures live. Emma becomes scared. But there’s a man with glasses standing in the middle of all this hair. – What are you doing in Mum’s hair? says Emma. – The same as you, he says, – trying to help.
The story is poetic and intense and will appeal to both children and adults. The beautiful and expressive illustrations are drawn by Svein Nyhus.
