In the big envelope there was an advent calendar with lovely illustrations from different artists and a copy of 'Bulle und Pelle', a book Ina illustrated.
'Bulle und Pelle' is about Bulle, a young boy and his bunny Pelle. One day Pelle dies. So Bulle goes looking for Pelle but he's nowhere to be found. Untill Bulle meets a stranger who gives him some insight about where Pelle can be found.
The story is very endearing. I think it's a wonderful book to give to young children who are dealing with the loss of a loved one. Ina's illustration are lovely. Very simple lines but spot on. The translate the feeling throughout the book into images very well.
Unfortunately the book is only available in German but if you speak the language a little it's not very difficult to read. I think the illustrations are beautiful enough the buy the book anyhow though! :D
Ina just informed me that the book is being translated into Danish and Korean too!
You can order the book from Amazon.co.uk.
Ina was kind enough to write a personal message for me in the book!
