Summary

The last thing 12-year-old Olaf Olsen wants to do is embarrass his family in front of a throng of spectators on one of the biggest days of the year in Norway, Syttende Mai (also known as Children's Day). Olaf has been chosen to give his school's annual address, following the children's parade and, with a newfound confidence following a startling confession from his father, he manages to overcome his apprehensions as a stutterer to give the assembly his best words ever. This fictional children's story explores Olaf's relationships with friends, classmates, and family, as well as his attitude toward himself in the context of his speech impediment. Olaf's way of dealing with challenges highlights important life skills for children such as optimism and perseverance.
