Born in 1976 in Gütersloh, Germany, Kristine Tauch always knew she'd be a writer. She wrote her first short stories and poems at the young age of 7. But she wouldn't walk this career path for another 20 years. During that time, Kristine studied pedagogics and languages, finding her passion in the field of education. Then, one day while out on a stroll amidst a beautiful environment, colorful characters captured her imagination and that's where her storytelling journey began.
Kira is a little squirrel and she's fleeing her forest because loggers have arrived to cut down her forest home. As Kira embarks upon a journey to find a new, safe place to live, she encounters a strange tree in the middle of a vast meadow. There, Kira meets some lovely forest friends who are seeking to escape their own misery. That's how a magical story about great courage begins.
