substratum arouses child's interest."

"Really original tales... They talk neither about
dragons and witches nor about princes and kings nor
about palaces and treasures. They are tales made up
from a contemporary man's imagination that has realized
and thus, wants to stress the problems that the thoughtless
application of technology achievements caused to humanity..."

"Those stories are not mere tales that their
only purpose is to amuse children. On the contrary,
they offer us a complete image of today's society...
It's good for children to learn to read such books that
state the truth about the world and its problems. It
is only in this way they will mature and work in favour
of the social welfare."

MESIMVRINI newspaper, 1 July 1986
"... The authoress does not confine herself to
"accusations" against the modern world sufferings.
By the means the genuine tale provides her, fertile
imagination, but mainly, owing to her knowing children's
soul and their spiritual needs, she proceeds to creative
transcendence of mere judgments, courageous confrontation
of the problems, arming children with optimism, hope
and faith in life, elements that are necessary for their
inner and spiritual health."

to contemporary reality on earth, and this is why this
