A Time When Wishing Still Helped
Zur Zeit, wo das Wünschen noch geholfen hat
This selection of stories unites familiar and beloved tales with a few others that deserve to be discovered anew. Julie Völk guides us through enchanted waterways, through thick forests and breathtaking mountain landscapes; she shows us magical gardens and pauses while we marvel at secret cottages and mighty palaces.
There are strange creatures to discover, along with clever girls and boys; witches playing tricks, and yes, even the Devil is at work. Just as the tales themselves enter our dreams, make us shiver and sometimes cause us to laugh out loud, the illustrations cast their own spell. In numerous vignettes and colorful larger scenes, Julie Völk presents the stories anew in her own unique style. She references the familiar while calling our attention to new details. This treasury of stories becomes, in the best sense, a gift to all - children will discover countless details, and in the red-and-white vignettes they will "read" the stories on their own; more seasoned readers will be surprised by new perspectives. The pictures, like the stories, allow us to travel back in time, but they remain modern and fresh. The unique environment created by these intimate, yet powerful pictures will enchant young and old alike.

Wildes Leben im Watt

the dunes and in the air, there is a teeming diversity of life everywhere.
With vivid and lifelike illustrations this nature book introduces readers to the wide variety of Wadden Sea lifeforms and their respective habitats: the tiny North Sea shrimp, the swift Arctic tern, the nimble harbor seal, and countless others.
Many of these creatures can be spotted during a shore hike or while wading in the Wadden. The book tells where and how to look for them
