Joppe und der Weihnachtswolf

Jo and the Christmas Wolf

The perfect present for young heroes

Jo lives with his mother on a sheep farm. Jo’s mum is strong and confident, whereas Jo is rather timid. But at Christmastime, his mum wants a little hero - at least, that’s what Jo thinks because he saw a superhero's cape drawn on her wish list, although he couldn’t make out what she had written underneath. When a wolf comes sloping through the snow, Jo sees his chance: he decides to be brave and chase the wolf away. But the wolf is just a tame herding dog. Good thing that mum didn't draw a cape on her wish list, but a red scarf. Because she always loves her Jo - whether he's a hero or not.
