Author: Lisa Bjärbo

Finally, my mother has finished working in Denmark, and now she is coming home to Sweden! She will move into an apartment right next to Viggo's school, and Viggo and little brother Nils will live with her every other week and in her father's house every other week. Viggo is so impatient, he can hardly wait until his mother moves home. It will be amazing! Mom is almost never tired and angry, the way Dad is sometimes, and she almost always wants to go to the swimming pool and watch movies and buy sweets. And besides, the apartment they are going to move into is certainly suuuuu super luxurious, with walls of gold, several large TVs, whirlpool in the bathroom and one or two puppies!
Especially that with the puppies is important. Viggo and his friend Malte have a secret dog club, and when Malte hears that Viggo's mother almost has promised him a dog, he becomes fire and flames.
But what about that dog? And the whirlpool, and all the TVs? Will motherhood really be as amazing as Viggo imagined?
Viggo and motherhood is an independent, long-awaited sequel to Viggo and the fear list.
