Stian Hole: Garmans Sommer

Discussion, Reading, Picture Book Cinema, Q&A

Garman’s summer seems to go by much faster than usual. The reason: His first school year awaits – and he feels uneasy about it. Do adults sometimes get scared, too? Of course, say Garman’s great aunts. Of needing a walker, or of slippery sidewalks in winter. Garman’s mom is afraid of the dentist and of Garman having to cross a big street on his way to school. An innovatively illustrated picture book about the comforting feeling of not being alone with one’s fears.

A cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence »Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective« at Freie Universität Berlin.
