There’s no doubt in Boy’s mind that his great-grandfather is the best storyteller ever! That’s why, when Boy hurts his foot, he is perfectly happy to be sent to stay with the old lobster fisherman for a week. Again, the seven days fly by as the pair tell each other rhymes and stories – about knights and kings, a mouse and a cat, and a little boy. By the end of the week, Boy has discovered that not everyone to whom a monument is erected is a hero, and that not everyone who’s a hero gets a monument.

Nick is nine years old and there’s one thing in the world he really wants – he would love to have a dog; a real, live dog. Unfortunately, everyone in Nick’s family is so crazy that he can’t talk to them about anything as ordinary as a dog – everyone, that is, but his grandad, John Lasar. Apart from Nick, he is the only sensible person in the family. And he is going to persuade Nick’s mother to let Nick have a dog at last. That’s what Nick hopes, at least and so he plans to talk to his grandad about it at the grand anniversary party to be held for his grandad’s chocolate factory.
But then things don’t turn out anything like Nick had imagined because Grandad John, Nick’s only ally of all people, turns crazy from one day to the next, and starts believing he is God.
This causes great excitement, of course, and for once in their lives, all the other members of the family agree that Grandad John absolutely must be brought to his senses. The only trouble is that no amount of yoga, music, argument, pleading or name calling has the slightest effect. Grandad John continues to declare that he is God. Then Nick remembers what his sister’s teacher once said about his sister’s India mania: namely that everyone should accept it and, even better, play along with it. So all the members of his family build a throne and set Grandad John upon it and one by one they come before him to ask him to grant their wishes.
Not even Nick would ever have guessed just how crazy his family’s wishes could be and above all what peculiar consequences the whole thing would have …

Anton is six years old, in his first year at school and he has time - unlike his mum, who is usually doing three things at once. Why is it that grown-ups never have any time and children always do? And why can’t you count time like you can marbles? Why does the art class whiz past like a racing car but the maths class stretch endlessly like chewing gum? Anton decides to get to the bottom of the great time puzzle. Luckily, he has an above-the-belt creature, an unconscious mammoth and a bus-driving chameleon to help him, and after lots of wonderfully told and illustrated detours, Anton finds a simple and absolutely amazing solution!
A hilarious book written in age-appropriate language with a distinctive, modern design and over 90 colour pictures, plus several collages and amusing text bubbles.
Reading this book about the funnniest solution to the great time puzzle takes only as long as it does to watch Anton’s cuddly toys being washed in the washing machine (after he put skin cream on them all) – but it’s as much fun as a rollator race along the corridor of an old people’s home, where you are as fast as a nose-diving falcon (with stones in its pocket)!
Delightful rhymes illustrated with gentle humour that inspire parents: soothing ways to send our little ones off to dreamland!

After solving the great time puzzle, Anton now has to deal with the timid bunny. What he really wants to do is finally show everyone that he's as brave as a lion! But to begin with, the lion hides away inside his timid bunny skin – and it’s no easy matter getting him out again. That’s because Anton is really only medium-sized, medium-old and medium-brave. And now he is having to spend three days at the youth hostel without his mummy! But if there’s one thing Anton and his friends do know, it’s that fear is as stupid as a metre of field track, get over it once and it’s much easier the next time. And real courage, as Anton knows full well, makes us even bigger. At least a couple of centimetres!
The second book about lovable little Anton: philosophical, humorous, warm-hearted. With lots of colour pictures, collages and speech bubbles.
