Haberstock, Meike (Author) Haberstock, Meike (Illustrator)

What is it about time? A smart, funny story about how long things take.
Anton is six years old, in his first year at school and he has time - unlike his mum, who is usually doing three things at once. Why is it that grown-ups never have any time and children always do? And why can’t you count time like you can marbles? Why does the art class whiz past like a racing car but the maths class stretch endlessly like chewing gum? Anton decides to get to the bottom of the great time puzzle. Luckily, he has an above-the-belt creature, an unconscious mammoth and a bus-driving chameleon to help him, and after lots of wonderfully told and illustrated detours, Anton finds a simple and absolutely amazing solution!

A hilarious book written in age-appropriate language with a distinctive, modern design and over 90 colour pictures, plus several collages and amusing text bubbles.

Reading this book about the funnniest solution to the great time puzzle takes only as long as it does to watch Anton’s cuddly toys being washed in the washing machine (after he put skin cream on them all) – but it’s as much fun as a rollator race along the corridor of an old people’s home, where you are as fast as a nose-diving falcon (with stones in its pocket)!

Always being good is boring. That’s why the little fairy decides to become a bad fairy instead of a good one. But there comes a time when you can even be fed up with being bad …
Is this a fairy tale – or perhaps a true story, after all?
Once upon a time there was a fairy who lived in the big wood just behind the motorway, not very far from the city. She had already brought up lots of fairy children, but none of them had ever been as stubborn as the little fairy. “No!” said the little fairy when Mummy fairy gave her a kiss on the forehead to wake her up and “No!” said the little fairy when she was told to clean her wings and her magic wand. “It’s hard to believe you want to grow up to be a good fairy,” said Mummy fairy.
But the little fairy didn’t want to be a good fairy any more. If bad fairies never have to clean their wings and their magic wand, then she definitely wanted to be a bad fairy. And so she started being one straight away and did a spell to put the deer family up a tree, turned the rabbit family into frogs and put the racoon family to sleep for a hundred years. Unfortunately, she lost her magic wand while she was doing all of this, so now, of course, she really has had more than enough of being bad. A new picture book based on the children’s TV programme “Siebenstein”. | 4 +
