Julie Völk

A Time When Wishing Still Helped

Zur Zeit, wo das Wünschen noch geholfen hat
Grimm's Fairy Tales as seen by artist Julie Völk - A Magical Masterpiece

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.

Count yourself to Bed, little brat

Zähl dich nett ins Bett
Going to bed can be so much fun- there’s so much to experience along the way! One small bat flies with you up the stairs, two brightly colored fish lead you to your room, ten long-armed octopuses tuck you in, and eleven sleepy little beavers cuddle with you…
Daniela Kulot’s fanciful counting and bedtime book invites reading aloud and rhyming together and teaches easy counting from 1 to 12.
A reference column on the left side of the page explains the numbers with digits, words, and pictures. Here even very small children can develop a sense for quantities.
Besides, who says that you have to count sheep to fall asleep?

Tracking Wolves

Wölfe
While this is cause for delight among many nature lovers, it's cause for concern and fear for others. The wolf has grown unfamiliar: this beautiful native animal was forced out of our forests for many years. How can we rethink our relationship to wolves now that the number of wolf packs in Germany and neighboring countries is increasing?
Following the belief that understanding is the
way to conquer fear, this atmospherically illustrated fact-based book introduces the reader to the life of a family of wolves.

We trace the footsteps—or paw prints—of a young wolf, see how a wolf pack is initially formed, learn about life within the pack, and experience how the next generation of wolves leaves the pack and sets out on its own. Inside the large-format flaps there are attractive infographics and texts that explain facts about wolves' biology and how to interact with them.

With 10 large flaps that open in all directions
Contains many facts about the biology, life, and behavior of wolves, as well as maps that show its habitats in Germany and Europe.

We Go To School! From Kenya to America

Wir gehen zur Schule!
When children in Germany go to school, they walk; ride a bike, scooter, or skateboard; come by bus or public transport; or their parents or guardians bring them with the car. But in some parts of the world, it's very different! Some children come by sled or by boot and sometimes even ride horses to school. In some regions there is no school building at all: classes take place outdoors or in a clay hut, with children aged six to sixteen all together.
 
In this book, we accompany children from different countries and cultures on their way to school. We see where they live, what they eat, and even what happens in their classrooms. School is an exciting thing for children all over the world, no matter if you're in Papua New Guinea or India, Switzerland or Argentina, America or Kenya—or even at the edge of the North Pole!
 
This informative, colorfully illustrated non-fiction book teaches preschoolers and primary school students a bit about how children in other cultures live and learn in a fun and engaging way.

William's Journey

Wilhelms Reise
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!

Wildesland
Alone in the Wilderness

Matthis has been roaming the summer forests of Norway with his dog Tara for days. He collects berries, catches fish, makes fires or swims in one of the many lakes. If it weren't for the thoughts of the fight with his parents, the words he had shouted after them, the accident... If only he wasn't always so unrestrained! Out of nowhere, a mysterious girl suddenly appears in the forest who knows how to fry earthworms. Jule speaks little, except when she tells stories about trolls. And she always disappears just as suddenly as she appeared... An adventurous summer story about loud and quiet feelings and life in nature.

Discovering the Wadden Sea

Wildes Leben im Watt
With a seemingly endless horizon, the
rhythmic roar of breaking waves, fresh sea breezes and tangy salt air, it’s no wonder that the Wadden Sea -- part of the North Sea –
is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. On shore and under water, on the tidal wash, on
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

Wild Life on the Meadow

Wildes Leben auf der Wiese
The Meadow is Alive - And How!

Have you ever seen a meadow up close? Then you know that it's full of things that creep, crawl, and buzz! But meadows are home not only to insects and spiders, but also birds, mammals and reptiles. Do you know, for example, where a harvest mouse builds its nest, or how long marmots sleep?

This non-fiction book for children shows us very special meadows like the Alm and the fascinating Feuchtwiese. We learn about meadow orchards, alpine meadows, pastures, swamps, wildflower meadows and wildflower strips. Every meadow is home to its own special plants and animals. Short descriptions and lifelike drawings brings us closer to the varied life of the meadow. And several viewing tips help us identify one hidden animal or another!

And for someone who wants to grow their own meadow, there are tips for laying one out - even a small wildflower meadow on the balcony!
