Selma

Author(s): Jutta Bauer

Gift/Inspiration

A small book about a big question. What is happiness? The story of Selma who says - Happiness is eating a little grass at sunrise, playing with the children until lunchtime, doing a little bit of exercise after lunch, a little more grass, a chat with her neighbour Mrs. Miller in the evening and then a lovely long sleep. If she had more time? She would eat a little grass in the morning, play with the children until lunchtime, do a little exercise after lunch, eat a little more grass, chat with her neighbour Mrs. Miller in the evening and then have a lovely long sleep. And if she won a million dollars? She would eat a little grass... Translated from the German and published by Gecko Press in 2010. Jutta Bauer won the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen Illustrator Award.
