Ida und die Waldkatze (Ida and the Forest Cat)
Fiction, Graphic Novel, 14+, ca. 140 pp
What can you do if your home is not a safe place and if you live in constant fear of your own family? The young cat Ida flees from her mother into the forest, searching for shelter. She meets a little tomcat who grants her understanding and friendship while, until now, she has found both only with her cuddly mouse Henry. An impressive, emotionally very appealing graphic novel that accompanies our heroine on her path to independence and a very beautiful and unique coming-of-age story, with drawings that are touching due to the sensitive, expressive design of the facial expressions, the atmospheric density and the numerous details.
