                                                              What a neighbourhood! The wild and wonderful house in the clouds is still swathed in darkness, but each time we pass from one side to the next, a window lights up. And behind each window, there is a new inhabitant with a story to discover. As well as the UFO dachshund Poldi, for instance, we have Irving Clevercloggs, who’s busily counting peas, Dick and Harry, some bouncing bears and Finn’s wife, who’s an astronaut.

                                                              Whimsical, tongue-in-cheek, wonderfully wacky: Nina Hammerle’s HOUSE IN THE CLOUDS introduces children to the joys of discovery and has them returning to look at the pages again and again - and to laugh their heads off.

And best of all, the main characters in all of the stories are children’s favourites: princess, fairy, mermaid and many more besides.

Age-appropriate conversation ideas, questions and puzzles encourage readers and their young listeners to take a hand in the stories themselves. | 4 +

A frog, and it actually claims to be a king – or to be exact, their king. King Frog proceeds to demand a palace, freshly grilled flies and absolute obedience. He even makes the pair build a wall to keep out the stork, which, he claims, is a sorcerer. Will the two best friends the forest has ever seen be taken in by this self-crowned king?
