Don‘t be afraid of the school essay!

Lola is nervous. She has to write a story for school, her very first school essay!

How lucky she is to have a dad who is an author and can give her tips on writing. And so an evening conversation develops between Lola and her dad about everything that is important when writing a story. How to develop a story from everyday life, for example. How to find new words. How to avoid boredom. Or what a punch line is.

Together with his seven-year-old daughter Lola Markus Orths has created a little guide to writing for children, packaged in a dialogue between father and daughter. Kerstin Meyer has illustrated the text in a witty and profound manner.
