Sylvester and the New Year (Paperback) (Eduard Morike)
about this item
The legend of Sylvester and his annual journey to Earth comes to life in a beautifully illustrated festive story for generations to love and enjoy
On a cold winter’s day Eduard Mörike took a walk with the young daughter of his friend. While stamping through the snow he told her the story of Sylvester and the New Year, a story which left a lasting impression on the young girl. When she was an adult, she wrote it down and so it has been passed on, creating a new tradition—the reading of this book on New Year’s Eve. This beautiful picture book is inspired by that fairytale told to a little girl more than 100 years ago. Originally told in German, and passed down through generations, this classic story is presented in a truly charming lovely incantation.
