Pictures with Kay's odd charm about a little circus girl who has a trapeze accident and stays behind under the care of a widow and her son. Her friends call her Elf Goldenhair since she is as light as a fairy queen, but her wildness is too much for the village and she is sent away to school. By a German children's novelist of the second half of the 1900's, who wrote fairy tales and many books for adolescent girls.
