About the Author

Katharina von der Gathen was born in 1972. She works in the area of sex education with children and adolescents from a wide range of backgrounds. She lives in Bonn with her husband and four children.

Anke Kuhl, born in 1970, is one of Germany’s leading children’s book illustrators, whose awards include the German Youth Literature Award in 2011. She lives in Frankfurt with her husband and two children.


The illustrations are gentle and often humorous without being childish or silly. They add another layer of understanding to the questions and answers and help take some of the potential awkwardness out of the content matter. 
*The Sapling*

Tell Me provides a wonderful way for children to address their curiosity safely on their own, or begin a more in-depth conversation with a parent or teacher. There is lots of nonjudgmental information about consent, identity, puberty and more, and sweetly humorous cartoon illustrations accompany each question (including naked genitals, so be prepared for some giggles as children learn). 
*Ako Journal*

What I like about this book is that the questions are in no particular order so you can read the book any which way or dip in and out. You can also look up specific questions in the back of the book. Some of the questions are expected, but many are not. Tell Me is amusing and cute as it is eye opening. 
*NZ Booklovers*

"The questions cover a lot of ground from more general questions — “What’s so important about bodies anyway?” and “What makes sex fun?” and “Is it embarrassing to have sex?” — to specific ones about anatomy, sexuality, gender identity, reproduction, and much more. Von der Gathen takes their answers very seriously, never engaging in a patronizing tone. She is refreshingly honest. Unflinching even, with an economy of information; she answers many of these questions in two to three paragraphs."
*Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast*

Funny and frank, this will be an important resource for many kids.
*Kirkus Reviews*

One of the best books on the topics of bodies, sex, and emotions that I’ve encountered.
*School Library Journal*
