How to Deal with Stormy Spirits
Oppskrift mot ånder som knuser ting

The only thing Henry knows about his dead mother is that she was the best shoemaker in the world and that he and his father never must talk about her. If they do, terrible storms will come and crush everything in the small flat where they live. When the storm one day comes to school, Henry is blamed for the damages the storm causes. And when Henry’s father, the famous opera singer whose voice has been poor since the death of Henry’s mother, is in danger of losing his job, Henry must find out what his mother is trying to tell them. It requires curiosity and courage, good friends, and a girl with a silver cape, a bird, and a recipe for how to deal with stormy spirits.
A story about spirits, singing, silence, sorrow, and shoes.
