“Bona nox…", in this way, a well-known song for children wrote and composed by Mozart starts. Jutta Bauer turns it in a story with suggestive beautiful pictures, where a bull and the night work together to scare little Lotte. But she does not let herself be intimidated and eventually finds the way back to her home and to her warm bed. Good night, dear Lotte!
A wonderful book that helps to shoo children’s fears away before going to bed. Besides, it clarifies how to say “good night” in Latin, Italian, French, English and German.
And those children that are keen on music can listen to the song in our website, while following the score at the end of the book.
“… the text, with its sometimes scatological touch of fun, shows a little girl who is woken up by a bull that carries the moon as horns… Delicious and humorous watercolour by Bauer… illustrate this non-sense story that moves between dreams and reality” (CLIJ, June 2006).
