Look it up with the Little Physician

»Hello, I’m Nano, the Little Physician. Anyone who has read my adventures about the inside of the body or seen me at the pictures will already know that I know my way round the body pretty well. And if you and your family have this book at home, you will always know what to do if you turn your ankle or have a tummy ache, or why cleaning your teeth is quite important, as are exercise and good food, too. So I can only recommend it!«
Yours truly, Nano

The ideal compendium for the family of today in a completely revised edition that’s more up to date than ever. The big and the little physician offer help for all kinds of situations – with their amusing, useful, refreshing and sound medical knowledge.

Dietl, Erhard (Author) Dietl, Erhard (Illustrator)

Ogglies love the letter A, because it rhymes so well with “waste.” They shudder when they hear the letter B, because bathing is torture for Ogglies. The C for computer is fine because the Ogglies like eating computers just as much as DVDs. This is the toad-slimiest way for all Oggly fans to learn the alphabet and how to make up rhymes – and for everyone else the perfect opportunity to at last become an Oggly fan, as well.
A toad-slimy, olchiferous ABC – delightfully rhymed and illustrated by "Oggly-Daddy" Erhard Dietl.
