Rote Wangen by Heinz Janisch( Book )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 148 libraries worldwide
Das Leben zeigt sich als Bilderbogen: Das Bilderbuch kommt daher wie ein Notizheft mit Bildern, der Text in Handschrift auf linierten Seiten. H.J. erzählt von Dingen und Ereignissen, die ihm sein Grossvater erzählt. Sie zeugen letztlich von grossen Lebenswünschen, von wirklichen, von möglichen und von absolut unmöglichen Erlebnissen. Lebenswünsche sind immer wahr, auch wenn sie sich in ihrer Verwirklichung oft wandeln. Und natürlich sind sie hier umso wahrer, weil sie Grossvater erzählt und erlebt hat. Die akribisch gemalten Bilder halten sich einprägsam in einer geheimnisvollen Schwebe. Sie sind so stark, dass Grossvater allmählich dahinter verschwindet. Ab 5 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer
