Emmi und Einschwein

Vol. 2 - Im Herzen ein Held!

Emmi and Unipig 2: A Hero at Heart!

Heroes sometimes emerge from the most unlikely places!

The two magical creatures of Emmi’s bossy schoolmate, Antonia, and the grumpy Mr Bockel were accidentally switched, and now everyone is miserable. Which is why Unipig and Emmi volunteer to reverse the unfortunate exchange. Easier said than done! For Antonia to reclaim her beloved matchling, Mr Bockel must agree to take back his own magical creature, the dreaded spitworm. Which is how Unipig and Emmi discover the Bockel family’s long-kept secret … and the spitworm reveals some unexpected abilities!

Emmi and Unipig are simply adorable. Author Anna Böhm’s little heroes convey the wise message ’Be true to yourself!’ with great humour and charm.

“A turbulent, beautiful, true-to-life story, bursting with curious, clever, creative ideas, and the most wonderful illustrations – just the way a children’s book should be.”
Gelnhäuser Neue Zeitung
