Light Bulb, Annette Schap
Annette Schap’s writing debut captivated children and their parents: despite the fact that the work reads like a serious science fiction novel, it has touchingness, naivety, childish immediacy, and expressiveness.
This is a book about little Emilia, nicknamed Lampeshka — that’s what her father, the lighthouse keeper, calls her. But it’s hard to call this girl’s bright life: she doesn’t have a mother, her father drinks, so much so that matches for the lighthouse have to be borrowed. Is there a place for adventure in such a life? Of course! And even though these are not adventurous trips to other worlds, but Lampeshka’s adventures are no worse: fairs, pirates, and mysterious monsters … And most importantly — the sea!
«The Last Elf» by Sylvanas de Marie
In a world where it rains forever and the sun has not been seen for years, people are sure that the elves are to blame for everything. And although all of them have long been driven into the “elf” reservations, the fields are still flooded with water, the people are starving and no one has the strength to change something. The dictator can rub his hands — there is no one who could resist him. But an ancient prophecy says: the circle of disasters will be broken by the last elf and the last dragon. But can they? After all, the elf is still quite a child, and the dragon is old and feeble. A book about love, honor, self-sacrifice.
