1,2,3,4 Animals That I Adore
Every child has a favorite animal! Whether that animal is an elephant, giraffe, bat, or penguin, this new activity book allows us to playfully design each and every one step by step. And it’s easy as pie: each of the twenty-six sections consists of four short, easy-to-understand steps – even newcomers to arts and crafts will be delighted. Almost all of the required materials can be found at home. Best of all: from A as in Ape to Z as in Zebra, we craft our way through the entire alphabet and get to know all of the alphabet letters as we go. A beastly arts and crafts joy for families, schools, and preschools alike!

1,2,3,...A Sack Full of Buttons
Button by button, Sabine Lohf and Yvonne Hergane help to make the Advent season before Christmas go by quickly. Lots of buttons have fallen out of Santa’s big sack, and now they’re being put to use as wheels for a puppet carriage, as eyes for a teddy bear, or for a funny snowball
fight. On each day of advent a button is added, until 24 of them decorate the Christmas tree.

Sabine Lohf has created tongue-in-cheek illustrations for Yvonne Hergane’s clever rhymes. This book is not only great for counting but also offers many colourful ideas for Christmas time: making button garlands, painting wishlists, polishing Santa’s boots, and much more.

Rights sold to China, Vietnam, USA (English rights worldwide)


Wanderlust, an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and enough energy for two lives: Alexander von Humboldt was the greatest traveler and most famous scientist of his time.
The "true discoverer of America” climbed the highest volcanoes, navigated unmapped rivers, discovered the flora and fauna of exotic lands, inspired contemporaries such as Goethe and Darwin, and exchanged ideas with the American president Thomas Jefferson and the freedom fighter Simón Bolívar. This fancifully illustrated book invites us to play the role of Humboldt's traveling companion and lets us marvel at the vast array of life this famous scientist helped to reveal.

With an index and and illustrated directory of historical figures.

Als Nino fast in den Zirkuswagen zog

Nino and the Circus Caravan
Great aunt Ella moves to a retirement home and her old circus wagon goes to spend its old age in Nino and Flori’s garden! The wagon is bright yellow. For Nino, it’s the greatest, most adventurous playground imaginable: you can sleep in it, practice circus tricks in it, and bake bread at the campfire in front of it.
 
Nino is the smallest of all, and his big brother Flori, who’s just a year older, hardly ever lets him play when his friends come over. But the circus car is there for everyone to use – isn’t it?
In this lively, compassionate book, Sigrid Zeevaert tells the story of two very different brothers and of how a colourful old circus car gets things rolling. Nino not only finds a best friend, but he also becomes closer to his older brother in a very unexpected way during the dispute over the car.

Artus

Arthur. King of Camelot
The message spreads like wildfire:
a stone has appeared near the arena with a giant sword stuck in it. The inscription promises a new king for Britain. When the five-year-old Arthur is the one to pull the sword out of the stone, there is much disappointment.
How can a child unite the divided country? But Arthur quickly proves that he is set on being Britain's king and with the help of the wizard Merlin he's ready to face any adversary.
An immortal tale of love and betrayal, intrigue and power, and the search for the Holy Grail—grippingly written and wonderfully illustrated.

Aus dem Schatten trat ein Fuchs

Out of the shadows stepped a Fox
Rights sold to Spain and China

“Out of the shadows crept a fox”... this is how Einar Turkowski's new masterpiece begins. For the first time ever, he combines his unique pencil drawings with colour. He takes the viewer on a search for happiness in his very own visual language. The fox roams through the night and a bird of paradise joins him. Both are colourful, both are looking for something, and neither one is quite sure where he’s going.
The landscape sometimes seems enchanted and reassuring, other times forbidding and threatening.
The night is still young, still long. But the more it advances, the more power it gains. The wanderers are close to losing heart and close to giving in to the dark mood. But the colour has been waiting to be found. It shows itself and gives the fox new courage for facing life. And the bird? He too finds his place and enchants us with his sad songs.

Balto and Togo - The Run to Nome
All rights available

Alaska, 1925. In the dead of winter, an epidemic has taken hold in the small city of Nome. Isolated as it is by snow and ice, the only way the city can obtain much-needed medication is by dogsled.
For 650 miles dog drivers and their teams of sled dogs, depending completely on each other, fight heavy snow and ice storms in a race against time. The “Serum Run to Nome”, as this real event became known, captured the world’s attention well beyond the Alaskan border.

Lena Zeise’s retelling and illustrations of this true story of wilderness survival makes a breathtaking tale of companionship, courage and the unique bond between the dog drivers and their teams.

Until the stars tremble
Sold to Russia

Leipzig, 1936. On the first day of the summer holidays,
16-year-old Harro gets into a fight with members of the
Hitler Youth. He unexpectedly gets help from like-minded
people who, like him, want nothing to do with the Nazi
ideology. In the year that follows, everything changes for
Harro. Conflicts with his parents and trouble at school,
nights at campfires, political action, first love – and above
all, the fear that his wild activities might have dangerous
consequences.
The "Leipzig Meuten", a group of oppositional youth gangs,
inspired Johannes Herwig’s debut. His discussion of growing
up in a dictatorship is powerful, thrilling, and emotional.
The questions he poses are as applicable now as
they were then: should one participate, should one quietly
adjust, or should one resist?

Rip-roaring fun from A to Z

"Take out the A and read turns red. (And paint slims down to pint.)" But not only that: without the K, a monkey turns to money! Instead of swinging from trees and eating bananas, it's ready for the piggy bank. Without the L, flour becomes four and black turns back. Take out the N and watch months turn to moths and fly away. Erase the E to make a bear a bar and every fear very far."

Author Ina Hattenhauer gives two full pages to showing the marvelous words that result when each letter of the alphabet disappears. Beautifully detailed illustrations show just how much fun she had with her discoveries. Look close and you'll see a whole world of astonishing details like owls juggling bowls, hose-wielding horses, or singers with stingers.
