"Get off the footpath, damn it!" Every time Selma cycles to the bakery with her dad, an old grandpa sits on the bench opposite and scolds the people loudly. "He has complainiritis," says Selma's father. Aha? How do you get something like that? Selma wants to know. And Selma has a special ability: she swaps if she doesn't understand something.
With wit, wisdom and empathy, Martin Baltscheit and Anne Becker tell a story of a turbulent role reversal of a fearless girl with a bitter old man. Seeing the world through Selma's eyes can only be good against complainiritis!
