Rennefarre

Dott’s Wonderful Travels and Adventures

By Malve von Hassell

When Dott sneaks out to see the bonfire at the edge of her village, she has no idea what will happen next. In the dark of night, the magical Rennefarre flower falls into her shoe. It not only makes her invisible, but allows her to understand the language of the animals and to see things no one else could see. No longer able to stay with her parents and her young brother and sister, she begins her search to find a way of out of her curious situation.

Her quest to return home to her family winds its way through the cities and countryside of 20th century Germany--and beyond. As she befriends the local animals, they help her on her way with gifts of food, shelter, and--through the help of a kind spirit--a magical cup which allows her to become small and ride on the back of the birds. Flying across the country with her best friends, a scruffy crow and an elegant heron, she always has one goal in mind: returning home to her family.
