Sofianna Paidousi:

"We may actually be made of the same stuff, but no one is the same and it is necessary to accept them

as they are."

By Despina Tascioglou

Σοφιάννα Παϊδούση στο Mikrofwno/Sofianna Paidousi

Ice Wonder, a boy made entirely of ice cream, has recently moved with his parents from the North Pole to a new country in the South, to a new home, to a new life. Will his new classmates accept him or will they make life difficult for him at school?

In the fairy-tale book for children and adults, published by Ocelotos publications, Sofianna Paidousi touches on a major problem of our modern times that torments many parents, teachers and especially students in the small society of the school: school bullying. The young writer and mother, after welcoming young and old at the 48th Book Festival in Zappeion, which took place in September, talks to mikrofwno about her first literary "child". At the same time, it is also the most comprehensive package on school bullying in Greece, as a multitude of experts have worked on this book, which is food for thought for children, parents, and teachers.

Get to know the talented Sofianna and her sweet "Ice Wonder" through the following interview!


Interview on Filanagnostis

In the context of a complex view of literature, our page also hosts books that belong to Children's and Youth literature. We recently presented in our Children's - Youth literature column the book "ICE WONDER" by Sofianna Paidousi. A book dealing with the emotional world of bullied children. The book does not just address the problem but aims to help children to recognize and manage their emotions, but mainly to understand that they should speak up if and when something similar happens in their own life or the life of someone of their age. In our presentation, we focused on the rich, well-written and above all well-crafted text, on the writing of Ms. Paidousi, on the plot and the flow of the work and in general on the fiction as a whole. But mainly we focused on everything that is included in this book as a whole, as it is obvious that this book has been created with much care and even more love.
   We asked the author for an interview which she immediately and with great willingness gave us and it is the first interview related to a children's book and today we present it to you. We are sure you will enjoy it.

How did you come up with the idea?

A few years ago, a tragic bullying incident shook Greece and affected me, consciously or unconsciously, to a great extent. It's been in the back of my mind for years, but like many other incidents that happen, it's been slow to surface in literary, at least, form.

Although Sofianna loves fairy tales, in conversation...
that we did with her, she impressed us with her beliefs, but also with the general philosophy she has for life and every expression of it, since as she says: "Everything is in the mind".

Sofianna is a case of a storyteller in the correct sense of the term. 
She doesn't tell you fairy tales, she takes you on a journey with true lies. Are you feeling bad? She is ready to tell you a fairy tale and take you to the land of myth. She will create an atmosphere, in terms of role-playing. She will become Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Little Mermaid, to read you the sacred fairy tales, which will bring you to your only homeland, the country of childhood.

I didn't know her until she sent me a video message from Thessaloniki, where she lives when she found out I was doing the Matala project. I did not believe it. She was on the beach, like the Little Mermaid.

Η Σοφιάννα Παϊδούση στο Diabazoume/ Sofianna Paidousi

-How did you start writing fairy tales?

As a kindergartner, I always tended to look for modern fairy tales, beyond the classics already known to children. Fairy tales, that refer to modern problems of everyday life.

-What was your first fairy tale and what was the reason for writing it?

"Beauty and the Beast… So what?" When I was a child I always wondered what happened after the fairy tales ended, what happened to the heroes. That's why I've always liked movies based on adaptations of classic fairy tales.

Screenwriter Sofianna Paidousi in the most fictional stand-up interview of her life!

Interview with journalist Nikos Kolitsis

The island's super-talented screenwriter, Sofianna Paidousi, writes the most imaginative interactive stand-up script of her life, according to the "popular demand" of the commissioned journalist Nikos Kolitsis, against the background of the blue sea of the Aegean Sea.

Afterward, Sofianna Paidousi records her motivations for writing, on an individual level, chooses her favorite author, makes a mini-life account, rationalizes the heroes of her stories, combined with her imagination and personal experiences, describes life's journeys of and recalls the most authorial travel destinations.

At the same time, she demonstrates the selflessness of man's relationship with animals and his valuable contribution to children with special needs, distinguishing the sociability of people from the perspective of all those who write and primarily express their feelings in this way.
Finally, she dreams of the novel of her life, which after this interview, becomes a self-evident question!
