It began with hissing and pointing behind my back. One day, out of the blue.
Victorine has started believing that her classmates are right: that she is different, and a loser.
How can I be popular, like all those other children? Victorine wonders.
She racks her brains, but does not dare tell anybody. Except the cat, and the tree on her street, who both try to help her. Not until the summer holidays does Victorine find peace again. She relishes her freedom. She discovers who she is and that, it seems, is exactly how it should be!
Victorine is a sensitive and heartfelt picture book that offers encouragement to children going through a tough time, and helps them understand the effects of bullying. Beautifully illustrated by Annemarie van Haeringen!
