A new picture book by Gro Dahle and Svein Nyhus is always something to look forward to. Jenta receives a watch from her grandmother and develops a relationship to time. She encounters time as though it is something concrete. Time takes control over the whole family. Jenta throws the watch way and Time stops. But then after a while she has to call it back and reconcile herself with it. The story contains both poetry and drama. The pictures are expressive with little detail and simple figures. The book addresses a theme everyone has a relationship to and to which you can let your mind run free endlessly. From five and up.
