Der 7. Sonntag im August

The 7th Sunday in August

If only it were Monday again at last! What a stupid Sunday, eleven-year-old Freddy thinks to herself. Tomorrow is the first day back at school after the holidays, her satchel isn’t packed yet and her report not yet signed, her big sister, Mia, is being her usual mean self and their father is totally preoccupied with cooking. A day like this almost makes school seem like something to look forward to! But next morning, the unbelievable happens: when Freddy wakes up, it’s Sunday again! And that happens over and over again, every day. After the first shock, she begins to discover the good things about this crazy time loop. But there’s only one thing Freddy really wants: for Monday to come round at last! A funny, exciting and imaginative story. Crazy time loop – great subject for a children’s book!
