Maar, Paul (Author) Muggenthaler, Eva (Illustrator)

A fairy-tale parable by one of Germany's best loved and most successful children's authors, Paul Maar. With magical illustrations by Eva Muggenthaler.

Princess Bea’s favourite pet is Rosemarie, the tortoise, who has a beautiful golden shell. One day the cat tells Rosemarie that there is some writing on the shell, and from that moment on, she can’t rest. She MUST find out what it says. But none of the other animals can tell her, because they can’t read. Only when she is dropped from the sky is the mystery finally solved.

Secret clues and animals, coupled with the frisson of getting lost and finding your way back home: it's a potent mixture which is guaranteed to appeal to all child readers.

Destined to become another Paul Maar classic.
