Grüße vom Mars

Notlandung bei Oma und Opa

Greetings from Mars – Emergency Landing at Grandma and Grandpa’s

Tom is ten years old and lives in his own world. He desperately wants to visit Mars, insists on sitting on the right-hand side of the table, and when something gets too much for him, he puts on his astronaut’s helmet. When his mother has to go to China, Tom and his siblings are sent to live with Grandma and Grandpa, but their grandparents have completely forgotten that their grandchildren are coming to visit. And to Tom’s horror, they only have a dinner table that’s round! The only way he can cope is by regarding the whole thing as preparation for a mission to Mars.

Moving and funny, this charming story is told with a light touch by Thomas Möller and Sebastian Grusnick.
