Sibylle von Olfers is the author of the original German folk tale, Etwas von den Wurzelkindem, which sold 800,000 copies in 1906 and exactly a century later Sieglinde Schoen Smith's quilted interpretation, Mother Earth & Her Children won the top prize at America's most prestigious quilt show. Jack Zipes, an acknowledged expert on folklore, has translated the text.

I love the history behind this book too; as detailed at the back.
I think perhaps there is something lost in translation with the story; as I find it a little odd; but still a book that is loved by both my almost 4yr old son, myself and the children I mind.
