Denmark, 1911. 10-year-old Inge Maria has traveled alone by boat from the big city of Copenhagen where she lived in an elegant apartment with her mother to her grandmother’s farm on the small island of Bornholm. She has never met her grandmother before, and the fact that a goat ate half her hair on the boat over certainly does not help make a good first impression. Inge Maria desperately wants to please her grandmother, but she seems to get into trouble more often than not. Whether it is having a bucket kicking contest with a donkey, dancing during music class, or gobbling like a turkey during church, her good natured imagination will have readers laughing out loud. Both hilarious and poignant, Inge Maria will win over readers just as she does her grandmother. Highly recommended for grades 2 & up.
