Abby's Dream

Abby’s Dream – No More Strings!

A girl in a world full of magic and mist,

full of music and tricks,

full of secrets …

Abby is an artiste held captive at a circus: She spends her days entertaining the audience and her nights in a cage, longing for freedom.

One day, Abby escapes the circus and gets to explore a mystical world. Alas, freedom comes at a cost and Abby soon finds herself dragged into the dangers this world has to offer. And she still does not feel free this force controlling her never seems to leave.

Who or what is still holding her back? Finally she realizes that she is still attached to her strings. And Abby realizes that she will only ever be free if she can break her strings

“Enchanting parable that celebrates freedom and a self-determined life as in beautiful drawings.” – Westfälische Nachrichten

“The book is suitable for young and old and combines a formula of adventure and universal messages that is hard to resist. The story can be subsumed under the keywords heteronomy, free will, standardisation and exploitation.
The illustrations turn the reading or cinema experience into an experience.” – derduftvonbuechernundkaffee

“An artistic picture book that takes you into a world full of magic and illusion.” –
