Es Gibt Dinge, Die Kann Man Nicht Erzaehlen (There Are Things You Cannot Describe)
Children always want to know if the stories they are being read are true. The stories in ES GIBT DINGE, DIE KANN MAN NICHT ERZÄHLEN are indeed all true. On her regular trips to Swaziland and through her work for a charity in the country, Kirsten Boie has met children similar to those who appear in her stories, has listened to them and had a glimpse into their daily lives. These poignant stories tell us about these children who have lost their parents to Aids, who are burdened with the responsibilities of having to raise their siblings, shedding light on their sadness as well as their hopes and dreams.
The stories in ES GIBT DINGE, DIE KANN MAN NICHT ERZÄHLEN are of literary brilliance, incredibly moving and should be read by adults as well as children.
