Seven questions and fourteen answers – the fun way to learn!
“Go where pepper grows!” But where does pepper actually grow? Why do bears go into hibernation? Because they can’t find a winter jacket to fit and it’s too cold to go out without a jacket? No, of course not! Bears cannot find enough food in winter. That’s why they eat lots to fatten themselves up throughout the rest of the year and then spend the cold season in their den. The bright children in this book know where pepper grows, why snails have a house, that a whale is not a fish and plenty more besides. But it’s lots more fun to think up the craziest answers to the questions before looking at the real answers!
A special picture book – amusing and informative for children and parents, with unusual and amusing illustrations.

    Even children’s rules can be fun! Teeth have to be cleaned! But why? Will lots of little cleaning men come along otherwise and scrub your teeth clean? Of course not! And tidying has to be done, too! Because otherwise Marie will only be able to move around her room on stilts, won’t she? Does that mean Mummy will have to give her her goodnight kiss on stilts, too? Even Marie can hardly believe that. But she does understand that, when her room is untidy, it’s hard to find things, she might step on her doll and that there is hardly has any room left to play in. The smart boys and girls in this book know exactly why rules make sense – but first they always think up a funny reason! The second picture book by creative duo Raab/Olten explains important rules for children in an amusing way they will understand. | 4 +

        This is the kind of Sunday outing Jan and Julia have always dreamt of: with a picnic on the edge of the woods, hunting for blackberries and a visit to a farm. The occasional shower of rain doesn’t matter at all. You can warm up again over tea and cocoa at the guesthouse and pick some flowers to take home on the way back. | 4 +

                Like most children, Jan and Julia like going to the circus. That’s because there are lots of things in the circus you don’t get to see every day: trick riders and clowns, lions, tigers and elephants, acrobats high up in the big top and ponies to ride on. | 4 +

                  All children fall ill some time. Jan and Julia have to stay in bed with coughs and runny noses.

                    Dreller, Christian (Author) Oertel, Katrin (Illustrator)

                    Some sayings of everyday wisdom are complete nonsense. Boris and Murat discover, for example, that contrary to the German belief, raven parents do take loving care of their children. Philip explains to his mum that just because he crosses his eyes they won’t stay like that. And Josephine has known for a long time that the earth is not flat. But is it really round?
                    These fascinating read-aloud stories are entertaining as well as informative for both children and their parents: What are our funniest everyday misapprehensions?

But they are slowly running out of oxygen…

                                  Recognising right-wing language patterns: the highly topical follow-up to "Say Something!".

                                  Why is language so important? Because HOW we say something is fundamentally linked to WHAT we say. In this new volume, the activist organisation “Tadel verpflichtet! e.V.” exposes right-wing populist language and the world view behind it. Practical examples help the reader to judge difficult situations accurately, and to counter them politely but radically.

                                  Clear Message: Speak out against right-wing extremism!

                                  More than 25.000 copies of "Say Something!" sold! | 12 +
