A “Schultüte” for the nephew

This school year, my nephew started school. (Yes, he is that big already).
Here in Germany, there is a custom to give children a „Schultüte“ (school-cone) when they start school. This cardboard cone is usually colorfully decorated and filled with all kinds of useful things for the start of school (a watercolor box, crayons and colored pencils, ruler and eraser). But of course, there’s always plenty of candy in there, too.

Of course, my nephew couldn’t start his school career with just any bought school-cone, possibly printed with those annoying firefighter puppies or any superheroes. It had to be his friends from their mutual space adventures!


The idea of somehow breaking down this corona related lockdown and self quarantine situation in a child-friendly way did not leave me anymore.
So I’m trying out a tiny little web series.
And if everything goes really well and we all meet outside again in (hopefully only) a few weeks, then the series will have a natural end… 😁😁😊
Until then I’ll try my hand at writing the screenplay for the “Querulous Quarantine Quintet”! 🎬📝
