URSULA WÖLFEL

These stories are not funny, but they neither talk about an unstained world. They talk about outsiders, about oppression, racial discrimination, war, social and individual troubles, prejudices, divorces, about hunger and alcoholic people… These are questions, not answers, that demand a conversation between the child and the adult.

 

“It tells us about how harms of society affect children” (El País).

“These tales have a different style, they have an undeniable quality” (Núria Ventura).

“A real catalyst in children’s literature… Even nowadays it achieves, thanks to its authenticity,  its author’s goal: to disturb the readers, to force them to look for an answer to a multitude of questions” (Children and Young Adults’ Literature Notebooks).

 

Obtained awards:

- Honor list. Hans Christian Andersen Prize

- Austrian Award to the Spreading of Children and Young Adults’ Literature
