My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts

My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts

by Torill Kove


ISBN: 978-1-77085-967-8

This tall tale of Kove's Norwegian grandmother was nominated for an Academy Award when first produced as an animated short film.

Torill Kove's grandmother often told stories to Torill when she was a young girl. One in particular revolved around ironing shirts for the King of Norway.

In this imaginative retelling, Kove embroiders this story with playful twists. She has her grandmother leading the Norwegian resistance to the invading German Army by sabotaging the enemy uniforms until morale among the Germans is so low that they lose the war and head home without a thing to wear!

Full of sharp humor and myth making, My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts is a great example of how small contributions to the greater good count for a whole lot.  This is a children's story that adults will especially enjoy.
