Emily has a new form of after-school entertainment when Albert moves in next door. Every afternoon he can be found on the front lawn, twisting his body into all kinds of crazy postures, then chanting “om”—something he calls “yoga”. Then one day something serious happens: Albert gets stuck, all twisted up like a pretzel. Albert knows what he needs, and he tries to tell the grownups who race over to help him, but everyone keeps misunderstanding. They comb his hair, bring him a gnome and even write him a poem but nothing works. The only person who hears Albert properly is Emily… but will she have the courage to speak up?
