Lars Saabye Christensen, Steven Norby (Translator)


List Price: 14.95*

Eleven-year-old Herman is not that different from other boys-except that he is going bald. Presented with this dilemma, Herman uses his fertile imagination and comical viewpoint on life to navigate through the rough seas commonly known as growing up. In the process, he teaches everyone something about friendship, courage, acceptance, and love. Sometimes in the smallest of boys there beats the biggest of hearts.

Praise For Herman

"An entertaining and readable book. So easy to read that one could be tempted to call it a children's book for adults. So wise and full of content that at the same time should be an adult book for children."  Dagbladet
