Was ist das?
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.
And its twice the fun when Mom and Dad are there to help!
An activity book that makes fun to learn facts about your body.
Look at the pictures , read aloud, rhyme along, and play together!

the door. Now, who might it be …. my friend!“
Now, that’s as snug and promising a beginning to a never-ending book as one could
wish for, isn’t it? The bear gets a visit from the fox, who is in turn visited by the
hare, the squirrel goes to see the hare and is visited by the owl. And the owl? Well,
the owl is comfortably ensconced in her wing chair knitting happily away until
Kingdom come. But who could ever be in need of such a long scarf as this? Well, if it
isn’t her friend, the big brown bear, whom we’ve already met at the very beginning!
Henrike Wilson’s cosy pictures tell a story that is no less exciting for being simple,
and which never really comes to an end. Not only will the readers enjoy guessing
who it might be now knocking on the door, but they’ll be amazed at what all those
animals of the forest will get up to of a night, how and where they live, and how glad
they are to have their friends over. This is a great book about friendship, and about
the art of storytelling - you couldn’t ask more for a bedtime story!
