* - A] heartwarming and richly engaging tale.- --Kirkus Reviews, starred review When Inge Maria Jensen's mother dies, the ten-year-old girl in braids is sent from Copenhagen to live on her grandmother's farm on the Danish island of Bornholm. The whimsical Inge is desperate to tease a smile out of her stern-seeming but -jelly-soft- grandmother with nonsensical songs and Hans Christian Andersen stories. A nostalgic nod to Pippi Longstocking and Heidi, this cozy, humorous novel explores love and loss . . . and the unsung magic of mischief.
