With Kirsten Boie to the countryside and right into the middle of the adventure: twelve-year-old Martha and her younger brothers Mats and Mikkel have to spend the holidays with their grandmother in the country. And this grandma is a bit strange: she lives alone in a remote house, sells homemade jam, has no telephone and certainly no internet. But chickens, a motorboat and a rifle with which she chases away uninvited guests. When the idyll is threatened, the city children and their grandmother stick together and realize what really matters in life.Kirsten Boie's new, warm-hearted story about friendship and togetherness is a plea for more attentiveness in dealing with nature. www.sommerby.de.
