About this title


George is playing with his boats, but there is no wind to make them sail. Then, one of the wind children comes and blows just for him, and together they embark on a great adventure.

The wind child blows dandelions in the meadows, shakes apples from the tree, blows the leaves around, and eventually blows George back home on a cloud.

From the author of The Story of the Root Children and The Story of the Snow Children, here is another classic children's story with beautiful illustrations in the Art Nouveau style.

About the Author:

Sibylle von Olfers (1881-1916) uses a blend of natural observation and simple design that critics have compared to the works of Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.
