Einer von uns

One Of Us

Through his sheer thirst for adaventure, the inquisitive baby elephant has lost track of the rest of his herd. He sets off to find them, encountering hills, trees, the sea, birds, animals and the wind … “One Of Us” is a celebration of diversity. This picture book demonstrates that everyone is welcome: big, small, migrants,  non-migrants - all with their own strengths and weaknesses. Everyone deserves to flourish and be happy, and to have a sense of community and belonging.
