As a child, Margit Auer wanted to be a postwoman and distribute letters on a yellow bicycle - but then everything turned out very differently. She became a journalist and wrote many articles for newspapers. When her three sons were born, she read a lot of children's books and decided to write some of her own. Which animal would you wish for yourself? A donkey! Margit Auer was awarded the Leipzig Reading Compass, the Reading Knirps and the Heidelberg Leander.
