Alžběta Skálová, Olga Černá / Claire and the 11 Nannies

Claire‘s granddad is a roofer. One day he falls of a roof and, as Claire does not have anyone else, her journey from nanny to nanny begins... She learns many things from them – singing, cooking, sewing – and she gets to know even more about the world, about people and also about herself. And especially about how lucky she was to have such a granddad! A children‘s “novel by letters,” which say much more than the words written in them, this book can be read both by children and adults.
