Patrick Süskind & Jean-Jacques Sempé
Die Geschichte von Herrn Sommer

English Title: The Story of Mr Sommer

A story from childhood days, but not a children's story: The extremely mysterious walks of Mr. Sommer astonish and amaze the small boy, not even an adult is able to explain or understand Mr. Sommer's behaving. Only at the end of the book; the litte boy doesn't climb trees anymore, doesn't consider the bicycle to be an enemy, has no more fights with his piano teacher; he is by chance the only person who takes part in Mr. Sommer's final secret. Sempé, a friend of Patrick Süskind's, took paint and brush and illustrated ›Die Geschichte von Herrn Sommer‹ with lovely pictures.

Quotes

»A soufflé of smugness and sentimentality, of thrills and deadly perils. A good read!«Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung
