Sofianna Paidousi (photo), comes from Chios, and is a writer of fairy tales. Her final thought "Ice Wonder" perhaps the most interesting children's book released last year. Sofianna talks to the children about the real and huge problem of school bullying. The one who is different - and persecuted for that - by his classmates, Ice, is the hero who experiences cruel bowling but eventually becomes a lesson in unity and love.



Ice Wonder is a boy made entirely of ice cream. He lived with his parents in the North Pole, from where he moved to a city in the South. But his classmates do not accept him at school and make his life difficult.
A fairy tale that touches in an intelligent and very instructive way on the great problem of our time, intra-school violence.
Sofiana, trained as a kindergarten teacher, knows the right way to pose this problem to the children. And it undoubtedly wins their attention to the great right to be different.


We asked Sofianna:

-When did you write the fairy tale? 

-A few years ago, a tragic event shocked Greece and me of course. It's been in the back of my mind for years, but like many other incidents that have unfortunately happened to my fellow humans and affect me, they're slow to surface in some form. 

-How did you start working with fairy tales? 

-I have completed my studies at the Department of Early Childhood Education, at the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, it's just that my concerns were, in a way, more artistic, I would dare to say, that's why I studied cinema at New York Collage and production of audio-visual material at IEK Akmi. Later, I studied, among other things, children's story writing and adolescent literature at Tabula Rasa. There I found that I like the fairy tale even more, as it combines the writing with the childhood and innocence that I adore. Plus, it's something that goes 100% through me and doesn't require the approval of others, so I'm doing my best to make it as smooth as possible. I want it to be, that is, as I would like it to be a fairy tale that I will read to my child.
