Synopsis

Garmann Wal Saif (Garmann's Sommer) by Stian Hole

This unique, award-winning picture book delves into the mind of a young boy who is afraid of starting school. As the summer ends, Garmann is preparing for his first day of school. Although his three ancient aunts try to help him by talking about the things that scare them, he is still nervous. And he can't believe that he hasn't lost a single tooth yet, despite his best efforts. Stian Hole has created a memorable and endearing character in Garmann, whose musings about fear and courage, life and death, beginnings and endings, help him understand that everyone is scared of something.
