Discover nature right from the cradle with Peter and Piet

A new forest adventure by renowned author Peter Wohlleben and his daughter. Goodness, it's hot! Peter the Forester and Piet the Squirrel are sweating buckets outside the forester's lodge. While Peter has a refreshing ice-cream, the squirrel scuttles off to find a cooler place. On the way, Piet encounters a host of other animals, who describe what they do when they are too hot. The frog leaps into the cold water; the wild boar wallows in a muddly puddle; and the grasshopper hides in the shade of a blade of grass. These tips are no help to Piet, though. Eventually the squirrel reaches the old beech forest. It's so pleasantly cool there… Piet absolutely has to tell his friend Peter about it.

Lift-the-flap book includes fascinating facts about the forest.

First board book by Peter Wohlleben and his daughter. A guaranteed big-seller.

Charming and lovingly told non-fiction book, with flaps to lift.

    All the animals think they’re tall –
    Even those that are very small.
    But none of them’s as tall by half
    As the tree-top touching, giant giraffe.

    What about you? Are you as tall as a mouse, or a sheep, or a bear?
    The concertina growth chart will tell you, and it will go on telling you until you are fully grown.

                                  The little bear has a special Christmas wish: he wants to see the Christkind and give it a wonderful present. Only what could that be? A couple of rosehips, perhaps? No, he’ll give them to the owl, who’s not feeling well. And the hungry squirrel needs those tasty nuts. When the little bear finally arrives home again, the Christkind has been and gone, but it did leave him a thank-you letter, saying that the little bear’s good deeds were the finest present it could have wished for. | 24 months +

But look – now the sun is setting.” Just moments ago, the small birds, squirrels and children were buzzing about and playing boisterously, but now they all stop and quietly gaze at the glorious sunset.

And Daddy also needs to take a look at the stars with him! Without further ado, Daddy Bear climbs in under the covers with the little bear. “One more kiss …,” he yawns, “… and that’s it,” says the little bear, snuggling into daddy’s arms.

                                        The unicorn of the ocean is here!

                                        What a pesky horn! The narwhal never knows where to put it when he wants to cuddle. But then he realises that the other animals have difficulties of their own. The octopus has so many arms he almost ends up in a knot. The sea urchin doesn’t want to prick anyone, and the seashells don’t have any arms to hug anyone with in the first place. But in spite of all the obstacles, each animal has its own, affectionate way of snuggling and cuddling. And so the little narwhal also comes up with a wonderful solution.

                                        Watch out lama, sloth and flamingo! It’s simply impossible not to love the little Narwhal! | 18 months +

But the best medicine is, of course, a big kiss from mummy. | 18 months +

                                                  Owl, elephant and cheeky shrimp: the big animal dictionary

                                                  There are so many animals in the world! Pigs, sheep and cows live on the farm, and jellyfish, shrimps and the huge sperm whale are at home under water. Zebras and giraffes survive in the blistering heat and polar bears and penguins sit on large ice floes in the freezing cold. It’s great fun for the children to name and to spot their favourite animals.
                                                  Delightful, fresh illustrations full of charm and humour: animals on the farm, in the water, in the air, in the woods and in other worlds. Each animal appears with its name.
