“My childhood is redolent with the perfumes of Liguria. My memories seems to have sealed in the scents of the sea and of wood, of rosemary and sage, not forgetting moth-balls and spirit, and to guard it like a treasure. This gave me the idea to write a cookery book with recipes of my nonna, my grandmother, along with personal recollections and pictures. The book gathers a number of simple, delicious, traditional dishes, that were the staple of my Italian family. Yet some more elaborate, exquisite recipes for festive occasions can also be found. So enjoy the trip to my nonna’s Finale Ligure, the coastal strip between Genoa and the French border.”

Das Löwenmädchen

The Lion girl
Sold to Denmark, China, Estonia, Brazil

Louise has a lion who protects her, gives her strength, and is always there for her. It’s important for her to have company because she’s often alone. And the other children don’t come to see her because they’re too afraid of the lion. One day Louise is shocked: her new neighbor appears to be a big-game hunter! She’ll have to hide her beloved lion! As it turns out, though, her neighbor is no hunter after all. His name is Martin. Together with Louise’s mother, he manages to help draw the young girl out of her elaborate dream world. As the three share cups of steaming cocoa, the door to Louise’s real life begins to open.

Kim Fupz Aakeson tells the story of a young girl who carefully withdraws from her fantasy world as she finds a friend in reality. Julie Völk’s subtle and expressive illustrations endow the story with a unique atmosphere.

Räuberkinder

Rascal Children
Rascal children are very naughty. And they have terrible manners – but even rascals love Christmas! They build snowmen, sing Christmas carols, and even decorate the tree together – everything in their own rascally way, of course!

Was ist das?

What's That?
Now, is this a skein of wool or rather a little sheep?
Bestselling author Antje Damm’s drawings, collages and photographs make up a surprising question-and-answer game, daring us to guess the things-behind-the things. A picture book to keep you guessing, playing or just plain fantasizing – and not for children only either. What’s that? Little children never get tired of asking that question. Antje Damm’s new book leads us a merry dance of pictures that leave you guessing what hides beneath.

22 objects that every child knows are transformed into animals. The pictures invite to a dialogue with the most diverse materials. By looking at them children may learn by and by to realize connections between various shapes and colours, and to devise picture puzzles of their own.

Diffy Differs, the red-and-white striped sheep with a difference, has finally found his place in the world: On the coast, where the wind tells its stories amid the roaring of the waves and by the blinking glow of the lighthouse - that’s where Diffy feels at home, snug and safe.
Yet, for all that, he’s still avid for adventure. So when his friend, the seagull, takes off, riding on the wind,
Diffy doesn’t think twice about joining her. And what wondrous sights they come to marvel at: Endless deserts, rank jungles and barren icescapes.

Wilhelms Reise

William's Journey
The scene is Bremerhaven, the year is 1872. Fleeing the squalor and crippling poverty of his home village, young William embarks the Columbia bound for America. Among his few belongings is a sketch-book to which he commits his various observations on board the ship: the hard work of the sailors, daily tribulations such as vermin or the friction due to overcrowding ‘tween-decks, rough seas and dead calm. On a brighter note, there are pleasant scenes such as children playing or the nocturnal phenomenon of marine phosphorescence. At last the big day has arrived: The Columbia berths at the Port of New York!

Ich wär so gern...dachte das Erdmännchen

I wish I were.... thought the Meerkat
Turn left... straight ahead... to the right... straight ahead... to the left... Meercat keeps a beady eye (or rather two) on his surroundings. He admires his neighbours in the zoo: The chimpanzees who fool around all day long, the bears who are so strong, and, of course, the King of all animals, the lion. And he dreams of being like these animals. If only he knew how much these very animals admire him the sheer surprise would probably send him toppling into the next groundhole. As it is, this smart and nimble little chap remains their secret hero - after all, nobody is quite as alert and quick as him.
