Christine Nöstlinger (Vienna, Austria, October 13, 1936 - Ottakring, June 28, 2018) was an Austrian writer. According to herself, as a child she was a wild and furious girl. After finishing high school he wanted to be an artist and so he studied graphic arts at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna. He worked as a graphic artist for a few years, before marrying journalist Ernst Nöstlinger, with whom he had two daughters. Most of Nöstlinger's production is children's and young people's literature, and he also writes for television, radio and newspapers. It focuses on the needs of children in their work, with an anti-authoritarian inclination, and is not afraid to address difficult issues such as racism, discrimination and self-isolation. Her first book was Die feuerrote Friederike, published in 1970. The book was published in English in 1975 as Frederica Fiery and in Catalan: Frederica, la pèl-roja (Barcelona: Cruïlla, 2001).

When the opener is found with a tin can, and inside it appears a 7-year-old boy, perfect and prefabricated (and who seems to be called Konrad because that says the label) and that will be a headache for the Mrs. Bartolotti, as she is not accustomed to living with other people, let alone children. 1974 - Das Leben der Tomanis 1974 - Achtung!
