Edda aus dem Moospfad 1

Vol. 1

Edda of Moss Lane

Our America Across the Way

Six-year-old Edda lives in Moss Lane, and she and her friends’ favourite place to play is “America”, the overgrown plot of land on the other side of the road. But then builders come along and put up a house there, of all places. Of course, Edda is definitely going to hate the new people for ever! It’s just too bad that she and the boy who moves into the new house get on like a house on fire from the word go.

A great book for reading aloud, with depth and humour

Like a best friend: a delightfully genuine narrator

For everyone who loves feel-good stories like “Sommerby”.

BÜCHER magazine awarded "Edda of Moss Lane" their “Grandios” seal of approval!
“Marvellous, the way Jasmin Schaudinn inhabits the emotional world of the first-person narrator. The author knows exactly what goes on in the minds of six-year-olds… a terrific debut that leaves you wanting more! Edda conquers the hearts of her readers!“

Jasmin Schaudinn

Jasmin Schaudinn started writing stories and giving them to her parents and friends while still at school. Before starting on a new book, she suspends a washing line across her tiny office on which she then hangs up all the things that inspire her, from newspaper articles to key rings. She lives with her family, three hens and a dog on the edge of Wuppertal.
