LEONARD AND LOULOU IN THE MEDIA
“Writing has always been her thing,” writes the Swiss Newspaper about the children’s author
Esther Bürki from Winterthur, who invented the story of Leonard and Loulou when her younger son no longer wanted to go to school. He wanted to stay home with his little cat. He didn’t want to talk to his classmates, because he always felt that they were much better than him and that’s why he felt ashamed of himself.
PUBLIC LECTURE “LEONARD AND LOULOU”
On a cold day in January, all chairs were occupied at the Bechandra bistro in Elgg.
Not only small visitors had come to listen to the story about the boy Leonard and his cat Loulou, but also older people sat in the audience and were pleased that the author Esther Bürki paid a visit to her village and read from her children’s book. The story contains a deeper meaning that also encourages and touches adults to think about it.
PRESENTING “LEONARD AND LOULOU”
When the School Buchwald in St. Gallen celebrated its 100th anniversary, Esther Bürki read from her first book and discussed with the school girls and boys not only about the different languages of cats and dogs, but also talked about how it feels to be teased by colleagues or how it feels when you think you are not good enough compared to others.
