my name is Natalia Kuschnerova. I was born in Kiev, Ukraine but have called Munich my home for over 20 years now. I am a graduate engineer and translator by trade.
Books are my passion. I read and translate them, I buy and sell them, but most importantly, I love writing them. I write novels and crime stories yet my greatest passion is writing children’s books. This is because, my Beloved Reader, whether you believe it or not, all adults remain children at heart.
This is a story about a nine-year-old boy named Maxim. Although he seemed to have everything, he was not happy because he had no friends. One day he was given a teddy bear as a present. The teddy bear named Ledvedik turned out to be a visitor from a parallel world and he quickly became Maxim‘s best friend.
Their adventures are well known to children in Ukraine and now I am excited to present them to you.
