Beschreibung

An enchanting tale of the wildflower and meadowflower root-children, who spend the winter asleep deep underground in the care of wise Mother Earth. When spring comes they wake up, sew new gowns and capes, clean and paint the beetles and bugs, and climb out into the lovely warm spring sunshine. After playing in the fields and meadows all summer, Mother Earth welcomes back to their home underground. The delicate and charming watercolor paintings illustrate the bounty and beauty of the seasons.

Portrait

The Story of the Root Children is Sibylle von Olfers' (1881-1916) best known work. Her blend of natural observation and use of simple design has led to comparisons with Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.

Pressestimmen

'Nothing could date this stunningly illustrated century-old book telling the story of the seasons ... Children are enchanted by images like the root children painting a line of ladybirds with pots of red and black paint. Sibylle von Olfers' careful drawings depict Nature scenes halfway between imagination and reality.' -- Juno Magazine, Top Ten Children's Books
