        Gernhardt, Robert (Author) Waechter, Philip (Illustrator)

        When Gernhardt’s subtle humour meets Waechter’s delightful illustrations, immortal classics are the result. Like the story of four-legged Trulli and his gang of stray dogs who want to sail to America in a bright-red rubber dinghy. Unfortunately, Trulli sets out on his own - well, not quite on his own because a gull goes along with him as a stowaway. That doesn’t suit Trulli at all and the inevitable follows.

        A modern new edition of the classic by Robert Gernhardt and Philip Waechter in a larger format!

        Robert Gernhardt’s story about bold Trulli on his journey around America and Philip Waechter’s delightful illustrations guarantee some very special fun with this picture book – and not just for children. | 3 +

If he stayed up, he could get on with all kinds of things, like finishing his model pirate ship, for example. But then, one evening, he hears a tap, tap, tapping at his window. Outside he sees a rocket in the air. From then on, Carly Comet, the space pilot, takes Paul with him on his nightly outings to strange galaxies, and what Paul experiences there surpasses everything he has ever known before at nursery school or even in his Granddad’s workshop. Going to bed has been a lot less stupid since then! Even when Carly’s rocket has to go into the garage for a service, Paul goes along with him, of course, with his cuddly rat, Conrad, stuffed into the top of his pyjama pants. Suddenly, they hear an almighty bang and there, in front of them, they see a small dragon. He takes our friends all the way across space to the land of dragons and then back again, to Paul’s cosy room.
