Story of the Wind Children, George is playing with his boats, but there’s no wind to make them sail. Then one of the wind children comes and blows especially for him — and together they embark on a great adventure.
Wind child blows dandelions in the meadows, shakes apples from the tree and blows the leaves around and eventually she blows George home on a cloud.
From the author of The Story of the Root Children and The Story of the Snow Children, another classic children’s story with beautiful illustrations in the art-nouveau style.

Sibylle von Olfers’ (1881-1916) blend of natural observation and use of simple design led to comparisons with Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow. Her other published works include The Story of the Root Children, Princess in the Forest and The Story of the Snow Children.
