Maar, Paul (Author) Ballhaus, Verena (Illustrator)

A story that takes us back to the days of fairytales and adventures. Full of wordplay and told with irony, it features a wealth of colour illustrations, some full-page.
As none of the suitors who asked for her hand were to her taste – you see, she wasn’t just rather beautiful, but also rather haughty – princess Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora hit on the unusual idea from having herself kidnapped by a monster. When the king then announced that the man who would rescue his daughter should marry her and be given half the kingdom, the bravest and most handsome princes would come from afar. But the monster – probably a vegetarian – wasn’t the tiniest bit interested in the princess, just in the delicious chocolates she had with her. So Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora more or less had to kidnap herself if her plan was to work.
And nothing else went according to plan, either. One by one, the princes who had set out to rescue Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora, returned home empty-handed. Then Simplinella, Princess of Lützelburgen, who had more sense than all the princes put together and her heart in the right place, decided to try her luck – and succeeded. This not only gained her half a kingdom and eight barrels full of gold pieces, but also the heart of the Crown Prince of Großburgen, who had been the monster so long as he was under an evil spell. What became of Princess Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora? Well, naturally she was not particularly pleased to be “rescued” by a princess and had to put off her wedding plans for a while. | 8 +

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 +
