    Where is Grandpa Elephant going? Children have many questions to ask
    Grandpa Elephant says goodbye to his grandchildren and explains that he is going to die and will not be coming back. The elephant children think about what it’s like when you’re dead. Can you walk on the clouds and do the angels make music? Or do you come back as a butterfly? The children know one thing for certain, though, that their grandpa will always be with them in their thoughts and dreams.
    A sensitive picture book that can help parents to speak to their children about death and loss. With lovely pictures full of atmosphere. | 3 +

          How does kissing feel? Does it taste as sweet as marzipan?

          The warthog is very knowledgeable, but sadly it has no idea at all about kissing. This has to change, he decides, and tries his luck with a spider, a bee and a butterfly, but none of them want a kiss from him. And the other animals also prefer to stay unkissed, so the warthog tries kissing a pebble. Will it return his kiss?

          A Warthog Wants to Kiss is really special thanks to Erhard Dietl’s rhymes, which guarantee great hilarity, and Christiane Hansen’s beautiful illustrations, which will soon have fans of kissing, large and small alike.

And while Grandpa is giving his aching back a rest, the big basket quickly empties. When Grandpa finally carries the proud, tired little bunny home, they are both very happy. | 12 months +

What’s the betting that his story will soon be a bestselling picture book anyway? What does a fearsome little dragon do when he can’t quite get his fearsomeness right? Simple, he get’s mummy dragon to bring him a human child – to practise on, so to speak. You see, human children are said to be very easy to frighten. They only have to catch sight of a dragon and already they’re trembling and screaming. The little dragon would like that. But when mummy dragon finally comes home with a human child, things are very different. At least, the child certainly doesn’t seem to be frightened – on the contrary. | 3 +

Clever dolphins, a gigantic whale and a flying fish: the Pekinese enjoying a trip on a steamer is as cool as a cucumber and not easy to impress.
