Julia und ihr kleiner Urgroßvater
Warum Urgroßvater August blauweiße Socken trägt und wie ein Weltmeister tanzen kann
Why Great-Grandfather August Wears Blue and White Socks and Can Dance Like a ChampionWhen Julia arrives in Gross Neuendorf, August is waiting for her at the bus stop. Joyfully he tosses his hat into the air. "We'll do something special every day!" he says happily. Julia likes to sit on the bench in August's workshop watching him as he works. August tells her about earlier times - like when he was a ferryman on the river. Sometimes Tim comes to visit. Then they all go fishing. When August gets tired, Julia sits on his bed and tucks him in. Back in school, Julia's thoughts often return to August. One afternoon in October Julia and her mother return to Gross Neuendorf. Lying on the hat rack is a cross with a bow . . . A lovely story about the things that bind together the very young and the very old.
