Man wird in ein Traumland geführt, welches die Wirklichkeit betrifft. Empfehlenswert für jeden der auch manchmal gerne in eine andere fliehen möchte, die nicht so weit von der Realität entfernt ist. Nachdem ich dieses Buch gelesen hatte, wollte ich auch Großmutter werden.
So, first of all, I loved Elsa’s character! She is only seven years old and knows more about Harry Potter and fandoms than I do. She easily has a better vocabulary than I have and she is still so much of a kid and so innocent and so close... So, first of all, I loved Elsa’s character! She is only seven years old and knows more about Harry Potter and fandoms than I do. She easily has a better vocabulary than I have and she is still so much of a kid and so innocent and so close to her Granny. Her Grandmother is always there for Elsa, protects her and tells her these amazing fairy tales of the Land-of-Almost-Awake. But Granny dies of cancer and leaves Elsa with only a letter. Through the story Elsa finds more of these letters which she has to take to those people her Granny wants to say sorry to. The plot of this book was amazing. This was one of the few books that I really didn’t have any negative feelings about and that was in a way very satisfying. Elsa has so many great adventures in this book and she gets so many new friends. Also I thought it a lovely idea to start some of the chapters with the fairy tales granny used to tell Elsa, because that way the reader gets to know those tales too. I really liked the book for the special point of view. Although it is written in third person I always had the feeling that Elsa was telling the story. I think I thought that way because her mum is always called Mum and her granny is always called Granny inside the book. I am so positively surprised by this book and I have no doubt in giving it 5 out of 5 stars. Everyone should absolutely read this book.
