In WONDER AND MAGIC, Per Jespersen has created a magic world, a world of enchantment for children (and adults) of all ages. David, the little shoeshine boy, goes out at night to polish the shoes of the rich passers-by in his city; his family is poor, and they need the money he brings back after working so hard. But one night, he polishes the shoes of an elderly man, who has on his finger an unusual ring. David touches the ring, and he begins a series of adventures of the mind and the imagination, which take him deep into the meaning of life itself. Per Jespersen has written more than a hundred books - novels, short stories, poems, essays - published in many countries. He has been working towards the introduction of philosophy for children (p4c) during the last twenty years. He sees philosophy as crucial for a mature development of children's minds. He is an existentialist. This is the reason you will find strokes of philosophical thinking in most of his works. Besides that he is the leader of Reading Line for children with reading difficulties, and is also the director of Randerup Free School.
