Praml, Sabine (Author) Cordes, Miriam (Illustrator)

“Dear Little Bunny, don’t do that, you are much too small for that!“ The little bunny is sick of being told he’s too small. And so he shows them all how good he is at doing things, like hiding Easter eggs with Grandpa. He soon finds the best hiding places, by jumping up high, bending right down low, and even crawling right inside a tree trunk. And while Grandpa is giving his aching back a rest, the big basket quickly empties. When Grandpa finally carries the proud, tired little bunny home, they are both very happy. | 12 months +

Dietl, Erhard (Author) Hansen, Christiane (Illustrator)

How does kissing feel? Does it taste as sweet as marzipan?

The warthog is very knowledgeable, but sadly it has no idea at all about kissing. This has to change, he decides, and tries his luck with a spider, a bee and a butterfly, but none of them want a kiss from him. And the other animals also prefer to stay unkissed, so the warthog tries kissing a pebble. Will it return his kiss?

A Warthog Wants to Kiss is really special thanks to Erhard Dietl’s rhymes, which guarantee great hilarity, and Christiane Hansen’s beautiful illustrations, which will soon have fans of kissing, large and small alike.
