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.

A robber who doesn’t want to rob anyone. That’s Little Robber Rapido, Nina Weger’s lovable new hero. “But why do robbers have to rob people?” Little Robber Rapido wonders. The answer is quite obvious to his friend, Rapscallion the Raccoon. It’s because they’re called robbers! “But why are they called robbers?” Sigh. This is precisely the problem: Rapido asks too many questions. He thinks too much. In fact, he’s completely un-robber-like. His father, Robber-in-Chief Rigorous, thinks so too. But then Rapido proves them all wrong! | 5 +
