Nach einer Figurenwelt von Janosch. Als der Bär einmal traurig war (und plötzlich so viel lachen musste)

Based on a character world by Janosch. When the bear was sad once (and suddenly had to laugh so much)

Florian Fickel (Written by), Johanna Seipelt (Illustrated by)

  • What helps against being sad? A best friend and lots of laughter!
  • Wonderfully told with a large portion of humour for the youngest children.
  • With lovingly true-to-the-original illustrations based on Janosch's world of characters.

The little tiger is sad. Why? He doesn't know exactly. Just sad. How good that he has the little bear! Because he knows what to do: If you're sad, you need to experience something. And something funny! And so the little tiger becomes a little less sad. And in the end? He even has to laugh a lot! How did the little bear do it? A funny and beautiful story that shows: Being sad is part of life and humour is the best antidote.
