Turbulent time-travel and an astonishingly effective rejuvenating potion!

Who is the mysterious Mr Bat? First of all he invented a time machine, and now he’s offering Robi’s granny a rejuvenating potion. However, even he doesn’t know much about this potion, as he was given it by a long-dead ancestor. All the same, Granny downs the bottle in one. And to Robi’s astonishment, she turns before his very eyes into a five-year-old girl. It’s far more than Robi can cope with. But there’s only one person who can reverse the transformation: Mr Bat’s long-dead ancestor. Thus begins a turbulent journey back through time…

As the pair follow the thief, they meet more and more animals who have also had things stolen.

They find him sitting by the river engulfed in a cloud of bath suds, washing everything – he just wanted to do everyone a good turn.

Taschinski, Stefanie (Author) Körting, Verena (Illustrator)

Lumi the lynx girl lives in Sparklewood with her Aunt Chain because her mother was bold enough to set foot in Millennium Gorge, where the wolves live, and ended up plunging to the depths. Still, Lumi leads a carefree life and likes to roam the woods with Rissa, the young fox girl, and Bristle, the wild boar boy. Then one day, she happens upon three very peculiar strangers wearing black masks around their eyes. The arrival of these visitors causes an uproar in Sparklewood and strikes fear into the hearts of many animals. Lumi plans to keep her distance, but when the youngest of the three creatures becomes entangled in a root, she relents and helps him.
That marks the beginning of a wonderful friendship between the young lynx girl Lumi and Rus Racoon, who has just come to Sparklewood with his family because their old home had been destroyed. Lumi explains the rules of the wood to Rus and shows him the many different facets of her home. And she also helps him and his family to hide.
This is necessary because not all of the woodland creatures are as well disposed towards the newcomers as Lumi. The animals who regard the wood as their territory feel that their traditional rights are being threatened. Snout the fox, in particular, stirs the other animals up into a frenzy and encourages them to join forces and drive the racoons out of the wood. Now there’s only one thing for it for Lumi and Rus: they must make sure the racoons are given a place in Sparklewood. And to do that, they need to find the mysterious Changetree, in which all Sparklewood creatures have scratched their mark. Only if they can add the racoons’ mark and plant their tree in Sparklewood will Snout and his followers perhaps leave them in peace. But it’s a long way to the Changetree and their path takes the two friends right into Millennium Gorge…

A contemporary counterpart to The Wind in the Willows and other classics.
A poetic parable about being different, friendship and tolerance.
Poetic and sensitive, told in modern language.
