  1. The flow , the theme, the rendering, everything is simply superb. I never had any such red umbrella (worth blogging kind). Reading this post, I have developed this longing to get such an umbrella. In love with this post……..

    Sinnlos und absolut sinnvoll!!! Mein Regenschirm ist pink und von dm, und er hat ein riesiges Loch im Schirm, aber er ist pink und von dm. Wait. Habe ich gerade 7 Minuten und 32 Sekunden damit verbracht, mir eine Geschichte über einen Regenschirm durchzulesen und sie auf mein Leben zu übertragen?! Nein, es waren nur 6 Minuten und 14 Sekunden, alles im Rahmen. Einen schönen sonnigen Tag wünsche ich euch 🙂

  3. I like this. But it made me feel quite sad for. Maybe I actually liked it BECAUSE of the melancholic undertones. Cute and touching little story. 🙂

  4. This is such a beautiful story. It can be a metaphor for so many different things. It leaves a lot up to the reader as far as the overall meaning and then they find what they need to find. I love the illustrations too. How I Met Your Mother fans would love this story of umbrellas.

  5. Some university student stole my umbrella once. I left it outside class as it was wet and when I returned to pick it up, it was gone. It was a sturdy, good quality one that didn’t have the top turn inside out and fly away despite gusty Melbourne winds in winter. So I still miss it.

  6. Children’s books are among the hardest to write. I spent thirty years writing for publication, and taught creative writing through the Institute of Children’s Literature. If you were my student, I would say, SUBMIT THIS YESTERDAY!

  7. Heartbreaking story. Nice drawings. Once I had also such red umbrella with a duck shaped handle. It was a present from my beloved granny but I forgot it in a train. Years ago but still present in my mind as if had happened yesterday.

  8. Love this! I totally understand the umbrella fascination.

    My mum always gets teary when she sees an umbrella without an owner. She always says “they’re your best friend when it’s raining but just get thrown away when they break”.

    I think this applies to so many things.

    Have hope though, maybe it is keeping someone else out of the rain x

    I didn’t pick up the orange poster my son left on his bag when I picked up his bag for him because he didn’t pick it up when I asked him to. And now his poster is in no man’s land. That land is a space that could be in after care’s treasured box or it’s bin. The poster will be in no man’s land for two weeks. Then we will find out if it’s trashed or if it’s stashed. Meanwhile, I think my son kind of feels like this. I kind of feel like this for him too. Hope we find his orange poster if we don’t make another one before the end of the next two weeks…
