Synopsis

The Story of the Wind Children by Sibylle Von Olfers

George is playing with his boats, but there's no wind to make them sail. Then one of the wind children comes and blows especially for him - and together they embark on a great adventure. The wind child blows dandelions in the meadows, shakes apples from the tree and blows the leaves around and eventually she blows George home on a cloud. From the author of The Story of the Root Children and The Story of the Snow Children , this is another classic children's story with beautiful illustrations in the art-nouveau style.

Reviews

'Born in East Prussia in 1881, Sibylle von Olfers'

's literature available in the United Kingdom. It seems fitting that ten years following this they should reaffirm commitment to Olfers prestige in the children's literature world through publication of The Story of the Wind Children . Autumn and nature are brilliantly personified in this beautifully detailed work' --Jake Hope, Achuka 'In each of her seasonal books, von Olfers'
