Two adorable consolation books in one, in the handy MAXI format!
Bold, bright pictures and delightfully funny rhymes for children to repeat and empathise with. For everyone with a big heart!
“Oh no,” groans the beaver. “I think I have a fever!” Straight away, all his friends want to help him. The ferret sends him to bed, the snail gives him a blanket, the rabbit provides a cold compress and they all get together to cook him hot soup! How could the beaver fail to get better now!
And who will help the little lobster? “Boohoo,” sobs the lobster. “I am so miserable.” The other animals are worried about their friend and try to comfort the little lobster and cheer him up. The plaice gives him a great big hug, the mussels snuggle up to him, and the starfish puts its arms around him. But none of this is enough to make him feel better. Then the seahorse swims up to her darling lobster, and now he’s happy again.

When animals are not quite the way you expected – a wonderfully crazy discovery book

Who can see Ingo the flamingo, Mat the cat, or Kellogg the dog ? This amusing picture book has plenty of challenges for young explorers since there’s always one animal that’s a little bit different from the norm. We see a pug in a tutu dancing through town, a horse flying across the sky like Superman, and a jellyfish playing the trumpet. The message here is very clear: Be yourself and no one else, use your own voice, that’s the only choice. You can, you may - hurray, hurray, that’s what we say!

A different approach to learning about animals
Great fun for small discoverers

Hammerle, Nina (Author) Hammerle, Nina (Illustrator)

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.

Maar, Paul (Author) Dalianis, Panajotis (Illustrator)

Typical of Paul Maar: weird, whacky and sure to raise a smile.

A dwarf who moves out of his organic waste bin and into Mr Mockinpot’s cosy flat? A talking vase that could make wishes come true if only it would listen properly? A queen who leaves her reading glasses on the royal lavatory?
Paul Maar’s power of imagination and his special way with words lend wings to classic fairy-tale motifs.

All the stories are wonderfully uneducational and ideal for reading aloud to the whole family.
Typical of Paul Maar: telling texts with a hint of mischief

Gernhardt, Robert (Author) Waechter, Philip (Illustrator)

When Gernhardt’s subtle humour meets Waechter’s delightful illustrations, immortal classics are the result. Like the story of four-legged Trulli and his gang of stray dogs who want to sail to America in a bright-red rubber dinghy. Unfortunately, Trulli sets out on his own - well, not quite on his own because a gull goes along with him as a stowaway. That doesn’t suit Trulli at all and the inevitable follows.

A modern new edition of the classic by Robert Gernhardt and Philip Waechter in a larger format!

Robert Gernhardt’s story about bold Trulli on his journey around America and Philip Waechter’s delightful illustrations guarantee some very special fun with this picture book – and not just for children. | 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.
