From Mother to Son

35 of May

One of the first books that gripped me as a child was “The 35th of May, or Conrad’s Ride to the South Seas” by Erich Kästner. I loved the humor and the absurd adventures that seem to take a whole different view of the world.

Today my son told me it’s one of his favorite books! His reasons were very similar to mine…

The 35th of May is chapter book about strange and absurd adventures that Conrad is having with his uncle, with many insights into grown-up’s behavior. Great read for children of all ages…
