My adventures by V. Swchwrm
Every adventure begins with a single sentence…
MY ADVENTURES is the autobiography of Swchwrm (9), who has only one ambition: to become a writer of books that leave people astounded. And while he struggles with his opening sentences, he also intends to fall in love, and so he practises both day and night, in secret. Finally, at the end of by far the saddest day of his life, he writes an adventure that moves even the seemingly impenetrable Queen, for whom suffering is ’mundane’, to tears.
