Rolf Barth writes children’s literature and film scripts. In 2006 he founded the Traumsalon edition at the children’s publisher Berliner Kinderbuchverlag to produce books inspired by children’s imagination, their special sense of humor and their wonderful spontaneity. These books are the fruits of his practice in direct dialogue with children, parents and teachers. A key character in the series is “Herr Wolke”, who helps children to identify problems and team up together to find solutions.
Rolf Barth also travels around Germany with his reading theater Cloud Magic and its lead character “Herr Schreiberling”, who whips up children’s enthusiasm for reading and inventing stories. Rolf Barth also works with Carlsen Verlag in Hamburg and more recently for Hanser Verlag in Munich.
