Every year in spring, the nomads stop by Soraya's village on their way to their summer home in the Afghan mountains. Accompanying them is Tarek, who knows sheep better than anyone else and is a wonderful storyteller. But this year Soraya waits for him in vain. According to an old tradition, as the seventh daughter in her family, she was raised as a boy and was able to move freely and attend school. But as a 14-year-old, she has reached the age where she should be living as a girl again in the quiet of her home. In fact the Taliban has, in no uncertain terms, mandated that she do so. They have also threatened Tarek and expect him to put his excellent animal tracking abilities to work for them. The nomads' plight worsens dramatically. Tarek and Soraya can see no other way and each journey out into the world, without knowing where the other is or what they're doing. Unexpectedly, they cross paths in the mountains.

Artus

Arthur. King of Camelot
The message spreads like wildfire:
a stone has appeared near the arena with a giant sword stuck in it. The inscription promises a new king for Britain. When the five-year-old Arthur is the one to pull the sword out of the stone, there is much disappointment.
How can a child unite the divided country? But Arthur quickly proves that he is set on being Britain's king and with the help of the wizard Merlin he's ready to face any adversary.
An immortal tale of love and betrayal, intrigue and power, and the search for the Holy Grail—grippingly written and wonderfully illustrated.

Als Nino fast in den Zirkuswagen zog

Nino and the Circus Caravan
Great aunt Ella moves to a retirement home and her old circus wagon goes to spend its old age in Nino and Flori’s garden! The wagon is bright yellow. For Nino, it’s the greatest, most adventurous playground imaginable: you can sleep in it, practice circus tricks in it, and bake bread at the campfire in front of it.
 
Nino is the smallest of all, and his big brother Flori, who’s just a year older, hardly ever lets him play when his friends come over. But the circus car is there for everyone to use – isn’t it?
In this lively, compassionate book, Sigrid Zeevaert tells the story of two very different brothers and of how a colourful old circus car gets things rolling. Nino not only finds a best friend, but he also becomes closer to his older brother in a very unexpected way during the dispute over the car.

Wenn ich in die Schule geh

Going to school
A girl and her little brother leave to go to school. Because the walk feels shorter and more fun with a larger group of people, they gather more and more children along the way. The reader is lucky enough to meet all of these different people and their equally different homes.
 
The path to school leads through a springtime birch forest to the river where the fishing family lives, past the farm, past the fields leading towards the city, past the auto repair shop, the circus tent, the bakery, and the pet shop, until it finally ends at the school. And the teacher? Oops – he overslept and is in a big hurry. Anyone who sets off down the path again will see him rushing off to school in the background.
 
Julie Völk’s illustrations depict the appeal of changing landscapes and the colourful diversity of people. Without the use of text, they show the importance, social function, and fun of going places on foot.
