Guthli is everyone’s favourite – a happy child who likes to draw fairies, swing and cycle. But then one day she is told not to wear her sister’s frilly frock that she loves, but her ‘own’ boy’s clothes. And things erupt. “Why do you keep saying I’m a boy when I’m a girl?” she asks her mother. In that simple question lies all the bewilderment that children like Guthli feel, who don’t seem to others what they know they are. The gentle, bold story tells it like it is, reality echoed in the flatness of the vibrant cut-out illustrations – Guthli’s sparkle and sadness, her family’s confusion, the big question mark that hangs over them all. How will Guthli get wings to be herself, to fly?
