      I use this book to teach about conclusions, as my class tend to love the first half of the book, but not the last half. We rewrite the end and talk about the importance of a strong conclusion. LOVE this story!

      Seven stars for this one. I so much love this kid Garmann! And the hidden Elvis :)))

      Skønne, skønne bøger han laver, ham Stian Hole. Denne er flot præmieret, men jeg kan bedre lide 1'eren. Når det så er sagt, er der intet, der slår Holes illustrationer.

      Published in 2010 by Eerdmans Books for Young Readers.Interest Level: 2nd-5th GradeThis book is about Garmann and two major experiences that he has near his home. The first is a bullying experience where he then participates in a devastating wildfire, and the second is about his encounter with a neighbor he calls "The Stamp Man". The title page and various stylized decorations on the pages with text reflect the idea of stamps, letters, and postmarks. The text is matter-of-fact in an almost surpr [...]

      “Garmann’s Street” is about the relationship that develops between Garmann and the “Stamp Man” after a near disastrous incident. It is the sequel to “Garmann’s Summer.”I liked this book. It did not have the humor of “Garmann’s Summer” but it was an enjoyable book nonetheless.The book is Norwegian with translation done by Don Bartlett who is the same person who translated “Garmann’s Summer.” I did not feel that any dialogue was lost in the translation. Nor did I feel t [...]

      This is as good as his first, Garmann's Summer. These are about the most complex picture books around--so much to look at in the unique illustrations (I'm pretty sure the guy with the leaf blower near the end is Elvis Presley), and so much to think about within the story. Stian Hole won the 2009 children's literature prize by the "Nordic Association of School Librarians" for this book, and other awards for Garmann's Summer. Let's hear it for the Norwegians!!!

      I thought that the book was confusing and it felt like pieces of information was missing. In the story, they tell facts and information that both the old man and the boy new and I liked that piece of the story. It would be a good book if you were teaching children about math. But, I wouldn't recommend to others to read.

    8. Jeanne Mcpeak on said:

      This book was very different and even though it is written as a picture book would be more appropriate for an older child. It covers a few topics such as bullying, facing your fears and finding friends in unexpected places. The illustrations were creative but dark and a little scary, the text was hard to follow for a child.

    9. Kirstin Kemppainen on said:

      I did not like this book at all. I thought it was inappropriate for children, the colors were dark, the pictures were weird and creepy, and the book was all over the place. One minute they were talking about a fire and the next minute about flowers. Absolute horrible book.

    10. Nadine on said:

      Very powerful book about an unlikely friendship as a result of an unfortunate event. The illustrations are slightly surreal and just off kilter enough to be both unsettling and confrontational while still familiar.A definite winner for older students

    11. George on said:

      Not for the typical picture book audience in my opinion. Too dark and frightening to read to my little ones. The art is pure talent and odd. Those who love the bizarre, will love the story and illustrations.My favorite part was the leaf blower.he looks like one only my sons.

    12. Marissa Elera on said:

      Another sophisticated, delicately told masterpiece from Stian Hole. It's subtle, finely tuned story gently but authentically tackles every day subjects like bullying, friendship, guilt, social hierarchy, and death with Hole's characteristic grace.

    13. Ann on said:

      This sequel to the BolognaRagazzi Award winner Garmann's Summer is as equally perplexing and beautiful as its predecessor. Stian Hole's books are not for every child (or adult) but they are certainly unique and memorable.

    14. Kate on said:

      Crazy, wonky illustrations that incorporate photographs. Weird, dijointed tale about a Norwegian kid, his bully and the creepy old man down the street whom he befriends after accidentally setting the man's yard on fire. I don't know if kids would like this, but I did.

    15. Betsy on said:

      These are the strangest books, but I just keep going back for more. Very intriguing pictures but unsettling story lines. Nothing overtly offensive Just "off" in a strange sort of way. I'll have to read them all.

    16. Catalina on said:

      a great tale about an intergenerational friendship and common(ish) passions. But is this about bullying as well, or is it that the book does not need to have a clear message, and the author simply wnats you to 'enjoy the ride'?

    17. Nerissa Lindauer on said:

      I thought that the book was confusing and it felt like pieces of information was missing. In the story.I would no recommend this book for any grade I feel like they would also be confused.

    18. Kim Piddington on said:

      Unique artwork illustrates this story about triumphing over a bully.

    19. Loren on said:

      a quirky picture book with an unusal narrative. I think the illustration style is unique and interesting. I am a sucker for collage.

    20. Danielle on said:

      I liked this one even better than the first.About bullies and bullies who turn out not to be bullies at all. About facing fears.
