    About the Author

    Jutta Bauer

    As a childJutta was born in 1955, in Hamburg She went to school for ten years and describes it as a necessary evil.As an adultJutta is one of the best known picture book artists and cartoonists in Europe She currently lives in Germany.As an artistWhen asked where the idea for Opas Engel the original German title of Grandpa s Angel Jutta commented, At the time I had my drawing table at the film studio of a friend and was actually looking for a funny story for a film My friend s studio had a big window looking onto the street and we would watch how the school children plodded along sometimes deep in thought Watching this, I couldn t help thinking that all these children usually do arrive safely Then I had the idea for the guardian angel Grandpa s Angel however, was not conceived as a story for children from the beginning Jutta added, I don t like that I believe that stories are like vessels They offer a form, but every reader no matter whether young or old fills it anew with their experiences and their individual stories.

      Tiny book with a big message. What is happiness? Loved this little gem by Jutta Bauer. It is simple, humorous and enlightening. Lovely water colour illustrations.

      Un po' troppo facile per i bambini, un poco troppo difficile per gli adulti.

      Una historia muy tierna, que nos habla del gusto por las cosas simples de la vida, y lo felices que pueden hacernos sentir.

      Jutta Bauer é uma autora alemã de quem a Cosac Naify publicou vários livros infanto-juvenis, todos ilustrados por ela mesma.Neste, muito bom, extraordinário, uma ovelha, Selma, dá algumas receitas de vida. O livro é pequeno e simples, mas genial! E divertido! Não há como não se encantar com esta história!Como a descrição básica do livro não foi incluída aqui, transcrevo a da editora a seguir."O dia-a-dia da ovelha Selma é aparentemente comum: ensinar as crianças a falar, pratica [...]

      After having dinner with a new friend and venting a bit of our commonalities in various daily life (not untypical) frustrations, my pal dropped by my office this morning with a small, not so small, gift: Selma by Jutta Bauer. Oh, how we waxed philosophical over dinner! Solving world problems, defining the meaning of life, discussing the pursuit of happiness! But I took a coffee break at my desk upon receiving this gift and in a few minutes, read the 51 pages of this children’s book (of all age [...]

      My Opinion: A fantastic book that is much more than the way an egocentric chooses books to read!A simple book about someone in search of happiness, who is told the story of a simple sheep; Selma, This is a philosophical book which is for adults as much as it is for children. Age range I would use it for: 6 +The pleasant illustrations narrate the story as well as the narration itself. The book doesn't necessarily give direct answers, more so is more of a vessel to convey thought. Uses In The Clas [...]

      Hay lugares mágicos en los sitios menos esperados. Como por ejemplo, la sección infantil de la librería del Fondo de Cultura Económica en Guadalajara, México. Allí, por casualidad, me encontré con este librito, muy sencillo, la sencillez misma, que me enamoró. Me lo compré para mí.Su autora / ilustradora, Jutta Bauer, ganó el Premio Hans Christian Andersen (como el Nobel en Literatura Infantil) en categoría de ilustración. .El libro empieza así:"Después de mucho pensar sin hallar [...]

      Selma is a true 'good read,' from beginning to end.Jutta Bauer does a fantastic job of reminding the audience to appreciate the small things in life--and to stop and smell the roses, or, in Selma's case, to stop and eat some grass.It is a constant reminder that no matter what we do or do not have in our life, what we do for a living, or how much money we have, to live our best life, never letting outside circumstances change our personalities or what we truly love to do.Selma is one of the sweet [...]

      Esta es una fábula escrita para niños pero con una moraleja para todas las edades. Uno de los libros, literalmente más bonitos que he tenido en mis manos últimamente. Es un cuentito de una ovejita que se lee en menos de quince minutos. Simplemente hermoso.

      Quiero tanto este libro! No sólo porque una oveja maravillosa es su protagonista, si no también porque explica de una forma simple y maravillosa lo que es apreciar las simplezas de la vida

      I read this book as part of my Illustrating Children's Books class. Selma is wonderfully and simply illustrated and has a great zen-like meaning to take away from it. I found it delightful.

      I originally bought this little book as a gift and loved it so much I was unable to give it away. Yes, you can read it in just a few minutes. Yes, it's a picture book. It's charming!
