In what ways is the funeral at Uncle Henrik’s different from other funerals?

The ways this funeral at Uncle Henrik’s is different from other funerals is that there are coats in the casket, the casket is not open, and no one is talking about the good times they had with Great-aunt Birte.

Think About the Situation the Johansens Face. Why might not knowing everything Help them to be Brave? Why does Mama lie to annemarie?

  • Not knowing everything may make Annemarie feel braver because there are many scary things that may be revealed when all of the situation is told.

  • Mama lies to Annemarie because she doesn’t want to reveal everything left because she wants Annemarie to stay brave.


The surprise Ellen receives during the funeral of Great-Aunt Birte is the arrival of Ellen’s parents and the arrival of Peter. Ellen is rejoiced to finally see her parents again.

  • Peter will lead one group to the dock where Uncle Henrik will be waiting with his boat. Twenty minutes later, Mama will lead the second group. It would be less likely for them to be spotted in these two groups. Mama will then return to Henrik’s and Peter will perform some other tasks that he must accomplish this night.
