Kasimir loves cake, especially cake with lemon icing. One day he meets Elke, who crashes into him with a tray of the home-made chocolate cheesecake that she bakes every day for Uwe’s Café on the corner. From this day forth, the two of them meet every morning for breakfast - bread with cheese, and then, a slice of cake. An unlikely friendship develops between Elke and Kasimir…. But then Elke disappears overnight and everyone notices how little they really knew about her. ELKE is a remarkable children’s novel about unlikely friendships, the strange world of grown-ups and life in the city. Christian Duda, the author, is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be presenting ELKE for the first time in Berlin. “A charming yet combative book told in a delightfully casual tone” (Rolf Brockschmidt, Tagesspiegel).
