The Visitor

By Antje Damm
Illustrated by Antje Damm

A story about friendship and shyness, full of light and colour, that plays out in a mini theatre

Elise was frightened—of spiders, people, even trees. So she never went out, night or day. One day a strange thing flies in through the window and lands at her feet. And then there comes a knock at the door. Elise has a visitor who will change everything. This is a gentle, sympathetic story about a child who unwittingly brings light and colour—literally—into a lonely person’s life.
