Overview Herman

At school there is Ruby with the big red hair, the one that someone says houses five bird nests. At home there is Herman´s mom who works at the Jacobsen´s Colonial, and who has a laugh so loud that the Nesodden ferry runs on ground and the City Hall clock comes to a full stop. She is also good at tossing a lunch pack pretty far. Herman´s dad is a crane operator, and from his seat he can see as far as America and beyond. At the fourth floor, Grandpa is laying in a four-poster-bed. He cannot walk, but he is still fit as a fiddle. So is Herman, until the day when the hairdresser asks to talk to his mother.

Winner of the Norwegian Critics Award.

A very entertaining and highly readable book. Wise and rich in content.
