Die feuerrote Friederike (Fiery Friederike) / Christine Nöstlinger. With illustrations by the author. – Munich: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, 2009. – 98 pages. Illustrated. |
Friederike is mocked by the other children because of her red hair.
But her mop of hair has magical powers: When Friederike wants, she can glow and spray sparks. That gains her respect, but makes her even more of an outsider.
