Birte M├╝ller

Willi's World

This picture book is bristling with energy – just like Willi! Willi’s world is a strange and alien place, a planet that’s very different from our own. He shows us what really matters to him, the things he loves and the things he really doesn’t like one bit! We see our supposedly normal existence through Willi’s eyes and feel it through his senses, with all his zest for life. It’s quite clear that his is a colourful, wild and exuberant life!

Unrestrained, up-front and loveable: with a combination of clear language and vivid imagery, Birte Müller shows us how her son Willi manages to conquer his disabilities.
