"The visit from little Death"...

...Little Death is desperate: The people he brings to the realm of the dead are sad. They sigh. They freeze. They are scared. No one ever speaks to him ...Until the evening when Little Death visits Elisewin. "You are finally here!" she says with a smile ... Elisewin is happy: Little Death takes away all her pain.

This picture book, written and illustrated by Kitty Crowther, is probably one of the most helpful stories to understand and deal with death as part of life. Kitty Crowther was honored with the “Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award” in 2010 for the picture book.

Klaus Lang, one of the most important Austrian composers of the present, is going to compose the story “The Visit from Little Death” to a musical fairytale to create a wonderful theater for young and old.
