Peter the Forester and Piet the Squirrel are sweating buckets outside the forester's lodge. While Peter has a refreshing ice-cream, the squirrel scuttles off to find a cooler place. On the way, Piet encounters a host of other animals, who describe what they do when they are too hot. The frog leaps into the cold water; the wild boar wallows in a muddly puddle; and the grasshopper hides in the shade of a blade of grass. These tips are no help to Piet, though. Eventually the squirrel reaches the old beech forest. It's so pleasantly cool there… Piet absolutely has to tell his friend Peter about it.

                                                                      Lift-the-flap book includes fascinating facts about the forest.

But how can she possibly reach them? The answer is clear - it’s time she learnt to fly! She practises and practises and in the end, just as she’s flying as high as she possibly can, Daddy holds her back and Mummy takes the little owl in her arms and explains that she can never fly far enough to reach the stars. But then the little owl notices a shooting star coming quite near to her – and, of course, it brings her lots of luck.

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.

                                                                          Watch out lama, sloth and flamingo! It’s simply impossible not to love the little Narwhal! | 18 months +

But look – now the sun is setting.” Just moments ago, the small birds, squirrels and children were buzzing about and playing boisterously, but now they all stop and quietly gaze at the glorious sunset. Soon the moon will be here to take the sun’s place in the sky. Now it’s time for bed. | 18 months +

What a good thing the young animals Rufus, Poppy, Mikkel and Flora are there to make him a woodland calendar that has a present for him every half-hour.
