A fairytale-like story about helicopter parents who smother their children with their love.
To make sure nothing can harm his son Jan, King Ferdinand surrounds him with an entire army of minders, from walkers and insect hunters to clothes warmers and cod liver oil administrators. It is no wonder that Jan is such a shy and pale little guy. Until he meets wild Sophie, who does all the things he is forbidden to doing, and whose way of life is so different from his – wild and dangerous!
Lukas Hartmann’s best-selling children’s book, which has also found success as a children’s play.
»Wild Sophie will impress you with a nuanced poetic language that is not often found in children’s literature.«
