Erich Kästner: For Young and Adult Children

Erich Kästner is one of the most popular German-speaking children's authors of the 20th century. His books were the subject of a multitude of German and international films. Children in his books and subsequently in his movies fight against the injustice and hardship of the adult world. Although they are very young they find solutions where more mature people have already failed. Kästner also wrote about adults but his favourite protagonists were people who,up totheir old age, preserved their sense of childlike ingeniousness and maintained a curious view of the world.
