Creative writing workshop / Meeting with Hana Tooke

In Amsterdam’s orphanage »Little Tulip«, five children are left in the fall of 1880. Twelve years later, the horrible orphanage director finally tries to get rid of them and leave them to a shady sugar trader. But Lotta, Mads, Mona, Gisbert, and Milou manage to escape. Together they embark on a search for Milou’s parents. This atmospherically dense, impressively literary, and adrenaline-charged children’s novel is a celebration of humor, friendship, and family.
