Emilie 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 grown-ups who race over to help him, but everyone keeps misunderstanding. The only person who hears Albert properly is Emilie - but will she have the courage to speak up?

When he finished, Albert sat with his legs crossed and chanted a single word: “om.”
