The Life of a Porpoise in the North Sea
Der kleine Wal und das Meer
What will he experience in his first years of life? In this atmospheric non-fiction picture book, we watch as the small harbor porpoise takes his first breath. We come along as he explores the mysterious underwater world, encounters sea urchins, shipwrecks, and squid, and hunts herring (yikes - be careful of the Orca!).
As the little whale grows up, he goes on his first long journey north to Norway before returning to his homeland, and then even starts a family of his own in the maritime area off of the island Sylt.
This unusual picture book with its large-scale illustrations introduces us to these special and, sadly, endangered marine animals. We learn a lot about their habitat, mating.
The last year of school begins for Sascha. Hanging out in the condemned house and increasingly dangerous tests of courage with his buddies: Is this what the rest of his life looks like? And then something happens. Something that shatters everything that used to be and calls into question everything that can still be. To duck away any further - impossible.
Rough in the sound of the street, full of heart underneath: in his new novel, Johannes Herwig tells of a friendship that seems to be above everything, and of the difficulty of taking responsibility. For those you care about - and for yourself.

Hamster, Stork and Swallowtail
Hamster, Storch und Schwalbenschwanz
An intact cultivated landscape is like a colourful mosaic: meadows, pastures, fields, tree groves and hedges. Crossed by pathways, waterways and rows of blossoms, it’s a rich environment for plants and animals. And it’s good for humans, too!
This large format, splendidly illustrated book is dedicated to the animals that make their homes here, and displays them in all their diversity. A few animals owe their names to this biosphere! But more than just field mice and meadowlarks can be found; countless birds and mammals are native to this environment. We learn about the most important and most interesting ones, and with a little luck, we’ll recognize them on our next visit to the pasture.
Award-winning illustrator Thomas Müller renders the lively environment of countryside and fields in every detailed brushstroke.
