Marilenchens Erlebnisse bei der Schneekönigin: In ihrem nur 35-jährigen Leben hat Sibylle von Olfers ein paar Bilderbücher geschrieben, die zu den Klassikern der Kinderbuchliteratur zählen. Ihr erstes Buch "Was Marilenchen erlebte" gehört auch dazu. Darin erzählt sie vom Marilenchen, das den Schneeflocken folgt, die sie zur Schneekönigin bringen. Dort sieht das Mädchen das wunderschöne Schloss und den zauberhaften Garten und verlebt eine fröhliche Zeit mit der Schlossgesellschaft und wird dann mit einem Schlitten, der von Eisbären gezogen wird wieder nach Hause gefahren. Sibylle von Olfers liebliche Geschichte ist in Versen gerschrieben und lebt von den Bildern, die diese in zauberhaften Szenen darstellt. Sie sind in sehr feinen, abgestimmten Farben gemalt und wirken stimmungsvoll und lebendig mit fantasievollen Rahmenmotiven. Ein zauberhaftes Bilderbuch für kleine Kinder und Erwachsene, die in Nostalgie schwelgen. Ab 5 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Beatrice Balint

My first root children by Sibylle Olfers ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"All through winter the root children sleep underground. When spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up, and they get ready to go outside into the sunshine with the beetles, bees and ladybirds. They play in the forest with the butterflies. In summer they dance in the meadow and by the stream. When autumn comes and the cold wind starts to blow, Mother Earth calls them back underground to go to sleep for the winter. The classic, seasonal "Story of the Root Children" is presented for the first time as a boardbook for very young children. While the overall story remains the same, the language has been simplified. All of the beautiful original illustrations are included, with some sympathetically adapted to fit the new format."--From publisher description
