The Story of the Wind Children: Mini edition

The Story of the Wind Children: Mini edition

By Sibylle von Olfers

"...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' illustrations are painted in tones which perfectly match the mood of the time of year... A joy for children and an inspiration for adults." —Juno Magazine

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 art-nouveau illustrations that cultivate a feeling of magic and nostalgia.
