    The sun is shining outside and Max the badger wants to go out and play. But first, he has to get dressed, of course, so he asks the reader to help him: to press the press-stud on his trousers, button up his cardigan, to tie his shoelaces and lastly to close the Velcro fastener on his jacket. Unfortunately, by the time he is dressed, it has started to rain and he needs help getting undressed again. | 24 months +

              A captivating picture book by Walter Trier and Harry Rowohlt.

                          The glow-worm flies through the night. Because it’s too bright for the mole, the glow-worm switches off its light for him, but then he lets it shine again for other animals. That way, the water flea need not feel afraid in the dark and the mouse can find its way back to its mouse hole. When all the animals are happy, the glow-worm meets up with its friends and they all dance merrily in the moonlight. Every picture has a spot to press that makes the glow-worm light up, and there’s one to make the moon shine on the last page.

                          An interactive goodnight book for little light-switch fans with a loveable main character and child-appropriate rhymes.

One after another, they come running to Mummy and Daddy with runny noses, sore throats, a nasty bump, tummy ache and a scratch. Mummy and Daddy really have their hands full because while they are busy comforting and taking care of one child, along comes the next unhappy bunny. Finally, all the little bunnies have been looked after and are happily tucked up in bed. But what’s wrong with Matti? His cheeks are all red! Oh, he’s got a tooth coming through… that must be it.

He’s feeling pretty lonely on Christmas Eve, but then a pig knocks at his door simply because it’s scared of the dark. One by one, other animals also turn up on his doorstep. They have all heard that a special child has been born in a stable in Bethlehem. They decide to visit the child together and, in the end, all the animals gather around the manger to gaze in wonder at the baby lying there. Everyone is happy and no one is alone any more.

But then he realises that the other animals have difficulties of their own. The octopus has so many arms he almost ends up in a knot. The sea urchin doesn’t want to prick anyone, and the seashells don’t have any arms to hug anyone with in the first place. But in spite of all the obstacles, each animal has its own, affectionate way of snuggling and cuddling. And so the little narwhal also comes up with a wonderful solution.
