"Lieselotte is lurking"

Lieselotte the cow is actually quite peaceful. It's only the letter carrier that she somehow has it in for ... She loves nothing more than to lie in wait for him and scare him. The poor fellow is already having nightmares. The farmer's wife is also furious. Every parcel she receives is damaged because the letter carrier always drops it out of fright. It can't go on like this. Then the letter carrier has an idea ...

"Lieselotte won't play along"

Lieselotte really doesn't feel like doing anything today. She's not even having fun at the post office. What's wrong with Lieselotte? She's actually always in a good mood. The vet can't find anything wrong with her and all the well-meant attempts to cheer her up are to no avail. And yet the sun is shining and her friends are playing their favorite games. No, Lieselotte won't join in. Then she won't. She should keep her bad mood to herself. And at first, Lieselotte really prefers to be alone. She grazes in peace, watches the animals in the meadow and relaxes. Maybe she should go back to the farm after all? In the meantime, Lieselotte is greatly missed by the farmer's wife and her friends. And when Lieselotte observes how everyone is thinking about how they can brighten Lieselotte's mood again, she happily runs into the garden and joins in again. In what? Playing her favorite game "Grab the cow", of course.

Alexander Steffensmeier was born in 1977 in Lippstadt and grew up in a small village in East Westphalia. He studied design with a focus on illustration at Münster University of Applied Sciences. For his diploma thesis in 2004, he designed the picture book "Lieselotte lurks" about a cow that loves to ambush the letter carrier and chase him off the farm. He has been working as a freelance illustrator since 2003 and works with several colleagues in the studio community "Hafenstraße 64" in Münster.
