Format: Paperback
This is a lovely story about a little boy in the last stages of cancer and in hospital on a children's ward where he makes close friendships with the children all of whom have some form of cancer.
The doctor knows but does not tell him that there is no further treatment to help him, but he finds out and is furious that his parents havn't got the decency to tell him the truth.
The only person who is prepared to treat him with respect is the volunteer lady, la dame rose who suggests that he should write a letter to God every day, and should think of each of the following days as representing 10 years of his life. He lives through puberty, love and "marriage" with a girl on the ward and is finally reconciled with his parents. He reaches the age of 100 and dies. Although the book talks about having a relationship with God, it is not religious at all.but can make you think.
This particular copy of the book has obviously been used as a school textbook in non French speaking countries because this copy had vocabulary added in German which wasnot much use to me, but i had previously read a friend's copy which had no added notes and was a much bigger and nicer book.

This short book could easily be read in a day. It is amusing, despite being about a child with leukemia- and his relationship with an aged hospital visitor. The explanatory notes are in German, but you really don't need them.

I have read the book before and adore it but I wasn't expecting this book to be so tiny and to have german footnotes! this needs to be made clearer

Very pleasant story, easily read, through the eyes of a young boy writing a journal. His close relationship with the lady in pink makes him approach the rest of his short life differently. A good read with a good sense of humour, could not put my book down. It was the first time I read E E Schmitt, and I will definitely read more of him.
