Loretta in the Air, by Axel Duwe

Adapted and Translated by Evi Psalti

Loretta teaches us that we can learn a new way of thinking. She has come to accept that nobody will hand her the magic lantern that will light her way; the fairy godmother will not come to her rescue, and she will not be transformed into a princess that lives happily ever after in her own, big castle.

hiding a coin wrapped in foil

Baked with love by mummy’s hand

enemies, they loom near,

If I want mischief, mischief I find,

and void when bored out of my mind.

A children’s tale about truth and fear…
