My shadow and I are bosom friends. He is always with me, even when I do not see him. Every day, my shadwo accompanies me to school, but he thinks it is boring. He prefers to go to the playground. At night, my shadow is his own boss. He climbs out of the window the moment that the light is switched off. He accompanies the cats on his accordion, tries to hook the stars and travels around the world. My shadow performs in Chinese theatres and stalks panthers in Black Afrika. In the morning, when I go to school, my shadow strolls after me. He is dead tired. What do you expect, after such a night?


A highly imaginative story about a shadow who leads an own life.
