Watch out, Bornholm! Inge Maria has arrived! Inge Maria is a rambunctious girl full of energy, imagination and spunk. When she arrives on the small island in Denmark where her grandmother lives, she is not sure what to do with all of the stern grownups. What's more, she's not sure what the grown-ups are going to think of her. Like most children, so does things sometimes without thinking of the consequences, but sometimes she does things because she needs to do them.
Join Inge Maria on her adventures as she falls asleep in the wagon on the way to her grandmother's house, just to get half of her hair eaten by a goat. It doesn't really get better from there--at least for awhile. Everywhere she goes she seems to get into trouble, but maybe, just maybe, this stern little island needs her brand of trouble! All children will find something to enjoy in Katrina Nannestad's When Mischief Came to Town (Lexile: 930; Interest Level: Grades 3-6). (192p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
