Wie ich Einstein das Leben rettete

How I Saved Einstein's Life
Rights sold to Hungary, Russia and Turkey

It’s shortly before midnight on February 28, 2020, and Emily is on board the
Queen Mary 2, sailing toward New York. Tomorrow is her 12th birthday and the
ocean crossing is her birthday present.

Suddenly, she finds herself in an entirely
new place and time -- on board a refugee ship in the year 1913!

The same happens to Lorenzo and Malik, who have made this trip before. They relate the news that after the ship arrives in New York, a fire will break out, killing and injuring many on board. They must prevent this catastrophe! Somehow they have to find a way to travel back in time. If there’s anyone that can help, it’s Albert Einstein.

A suspenseful adventure story that looks back in time to 1913, when many German citizens left everything behind to start a new life in a foreign land.

We're Going to School! From Kenya to America
Korean rights sold

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.

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.

Animal Conductor
Rights sold to China

The animal orchestra is giving a concert in a public park. Everyone takes their instruments out, but the stage is too narrow for the sparrow.
He begs: "Please may I play the clarinet?„
The monkey says: "I'm afraid you're too small yet."
He can't blow hard enough for the tuba. He's not strong enough for percussion. And to hold a bow for the stringed instruments he'd need paws instead of wings. Defeated, the sparrow sits in the audience.

The sound was nice just days ago
But now the music has no flow:
Just squeaks and squawks—a real disaster,
They all play faster and faster…
One thing is clear: they need someone to keep a steady beat. So the tiny sparrow becomes a great conductor.
