Anton is six years old, in his first year at school and he has time - unlike his mum, who is usually doing three things at once. Why is it that grown-ups never have any time and children always do? And why can’t you count time like you can marbles? Why does the art class whiz past like a racing car but the maths class stretch endlessly like chewing gum? Anton decides to get to the bottom of the great time puzzle. Luckily, he has an above-the-belt creature, an unconscious mammoth and a bus-driving chameleon to help him, and after lots of wonderfully told and illustrated detours, Anton finds a simple and absolutely amazing solution!
A hilarious book written in age-appropriate language with a distinctive, modern design and over 90 colour pictures, plus several collages and amusing text bubbles.
Reading this book about the funnniest solution to the great time puzzle takes only as long as it does to watch Anton’s cuddly toys being washed in the washing machine (after he put skin cream on them all) – but it’s as much fun as a rollator race along the corridor of an old people’s home, where you are as fast as a nose-diving falcon (with stones in its pocket)!
After solving the great time puzzle, Anton now has to deal with the timid bunny. What he really wants to do is finally show everyone that he's as brave as a lion! But to begin with, the lion hides away inside his timid bunny skin – and it’s no easy matter getting him out again. That’s because Anton is really only medium-sized, medium-old and medium-brave. And now he is having to spend three days at the youth hostel without his mummy! But if there’s one thing Anton and his friends do know, it’s that fear is as stupid as a metre of field track, get over it once and it’s much easier the next time. And real courage, as Anton knows full well, makes us even bigger. At least a couple of centimetres!
The second book about lovable little Anton: philosophical, humorous, warm-hearted. With lots of colour pictures, collages and speech bubbles.
