Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Garmann is back for another story in this follow-up to the acclaimed books Garmann?'s Summer and Garmann?'s Street. And he?'s joined once more by some favorite characters from the original book, including the twins Hannah and Johanna.

They re like two peas in a pod, adults whisper about the girls. But Garmann knows that they aren't. Then one day Johanna takes Garmann into the woods to show him a surprise, and the two find a secret world full of imagination and discovery.

Award-winning author and illustrator Stian Hole has once again created a book filled with wonder that will delight fans of Garmann.

Review:

"In Garmann's third coming-of-age story, Hole tells a euphoric story of first love. Each time Garmann's eyes meet Johanna's, a 'nice tingle spreads through his body.' When Johanna takes Garmann into the woods to show him what she believes is a space capsule, they create a wondrous world of their own, pondering nature and metaphysical questions, and even sharing a kiss. The dreamlike photo-collage artwork mixes contemporary images with ones borrowed from the past (Elvis and other vintage figures can be seen in a local parade), as well as botanical and astrological prints, for a heightened, surreal effect. Ages 6 — 10." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
