«A Bell for Ursli»
Selina Chonz was a poet from the Engadine valley in the Graubünden mountains of Switzerland. She wrote the text for several Alois Carigiet books, including A Bell for Ursli, Florina and the Wild Bird, and The Snowstorm.
A little boy named Ursli lives in the Swiss Alps, and he must find a big cowbell so that he can lead the spring procession through his village. He goes alone to his family’s chalet high up in the mountains and, there, he spends a lonely, scary night.
Generations of Swiss children have grown up with the delightful story of Ursli, and now, for the first time, his adventures have become available in English.
