Taschinski, Stefanie (Author) Körting, Verena (Illustrator)

Lumi the lynx girl lives in Sparklewood with her Aunt Chain because her mother was bold enough to set foot in Millennium Gorge, where the wolves live, and ended up plunging to the depths. Still, Lumi leads a carefree life and likes to roam the woods with Rissa, the young fox girl, and Bristle, the wild boar boy. Then one day, she happens upon three very peculiar strangers wearing black masks around their eyes. The arrival of these visitors causes an uproar in Sparklewood and strikes fear into the hearts of many animals. Lumi plans to keep her distance, but when the youngest of the three creatures becomes entangled in a root, she relents and helps him.
That marks the beginning of a wonderful friendship between the young lynx girl Lumi and Rus Racoon, who has just come to Sparklewood with his family because their old home had been destroyed. Lumi explains the rules of the wood to Rus and shows him the many different facets of her home. And she also helps him and his family to hide.
This is necessary because not all of the woodland creatures are as well disposed towards the newcomers as Lumi. The animals who regard the wood as their territory feel that their traditional rights are being threatened. Snout the fox, in particular, stirs the other animals up into a frenzy and encourages them to join forces and drive the racoons out of the wood. Now there’s only one thing for it for Lumi and Rus: they must make sure the racoons are given a place in Sparklewood. And to do that, they need to find the mysterious Changetree, in which all Sparklewood creatures have scratched their mark. Only if they can add the racoons’ mark and plant their tree in Sparklewood will Snout and his followers perhaps leave them in peace. But it’s a long way to the Changetree and their path takes the two friends right into Millennium Gorge…

A contemporary counterpart to The Wind in the Willows and other classics.
A poetic parable about being different, friendship and tolerance.
Poetic and sensitive, told in modern language.

Boie, Kirsten (Author) Brix, Silke (Illustrator)

Little brothers are the nastiest things in the world, Anna thinks. But big sisters aren’t always what you would expect them to be, if you can believe Olli. Anna is nearly seven and in year one at school. Olli isn’t even four yet and has only just started nursery school. He doesn’t know anything about numbers and letters and things like that. All he knows is how to get on his big sister’s nerves – by secretly eating the chocolate out of the advent calendar, or wanting to join in when she’s dressing up with her friends. Then Mummy is always on his side. It’s quite obvious that Mummy loves Olli better. That’s not how Olli sees it, though. He’s never allowed to be in the room he shares with Anna when she’s playing with her friends, and she never gives him any of her sweets, either. No wonder Olli sometimes has to kick her. Then Mummy always scolds him. It’s quite obvious that Mummy loves Anna better. Sometimes, though, big sisters and little brothers can also be quite useful: like when it gets dark and there are dangerous robbers all over the place … | 4 +

Hamburg St. Pauli – seriously?! People run around in pirate shirts here, don’t they? And now Owen is faced with making friends at his new school. Awesome …

But to Owen’s surprise, it turns out not to be so hard, after all. Tom is pretty cool and a really good footballer, and kicking a ball around in the afternoon with Ella and her pals on their neighbourhood football ground is pretty fun! But why does Ella always frown when Tom’s around? When FC St. Pauli organises a street football contest, things get complicated: Owen could play on Tom’s superteam, which has a good chance of winning the title, or he could play with Ella and the others, “the Tearaways” – against Tom. But that could mean trouble … | 8 +

And if that weren’t bad enough, the cheeky players on the Olympia SC team really believe that they can play far better football than the Tearaways. Only a match can decide which of them is right here. That wouldn’t be a problem at all if Ella hadn’t been so sure of winning that she bet The Tearaways’ unique, specially made FC St. Pauli jerseys on it! Now the Tearaways can’t afford to put a foot wrong or they can wave goodbye to their precious jerseys. Football ground under threat, jerseys under threat – the Tearaways will have to come up with a solution… | 8 +
