My Friend Otto, the Wilde Life and I
Rights sold to Russia

"Otto once said that our lives are far too tame and since then I've been thinking about the wild life. Maybe he was right. But if he was right, then what should we do?"
Matti and Otto have known each other their whole lives, except for the first three weeks. They live in a place where everyone goes on vacation: downtown Berlin. They go to yoga and play the piano. Matti laughs all the time and Otto can't sing. So everything's pretty normal – too normal??? One day at school they discover a video of Brotha Berlin rapping on YouTube and decide that something's got to change!
The only question is how ... A big-city story for the children of today. It's a tale about friendship, oddball teachers and weirdo neighbors, real estate sharks and dangerous gangsters, mothers and fathers – in other words, the wild life!

Eric, the Viking Boy
A farm on the Baltic Sea, ca. 950. Erik‘s brother Leif, who took off on a Viking voyage months ago ready for adventure and hungry for loot, still hasn‘t returned. Erik sets off
for the big Viking port He- deby in search of his brother, but no one there has heard any news of Leif or his ship, the Whale Rider. Just as Erik is beginning to give up hope, a
dragon ship appears on the horizon.

We accompany Erik on his journey and learn what the Viking community looked like, which gods they worshipped, why the raids they led with their fast ships were so
successful for such a long time, and why they loved hair combs. We attend a Viking feast, watch a ship being built, and look over the shoulders of merchants and craftspeople.
An atmospheric non-fiction picture book about these legendary northeners and about the successful outcome of an adventurous journey. With impres- sive illustrations and
exciting information about the life and culture of Vikings, who, contrary to their reputation, were not only menacing pirates but also farmers, merchants, seafarers, and
explorers.

A Crime in Eden 1919
From Breckerfeld to Berlin! The 17-year-old Biko can hardly believe his luck. He actually got into the famous Artistenschule, a training academy for circus performers in Berlin! An old suitcase in the lost and found at the Artistenschule sends him 100 years back in time to a tumultuous time in Berlin – the era of the First World War, the November Revolution, and the murder of Rosa Luxemburg.
A Crime in Eden in 1919 – a genuine political crime story begins. But modern-day Berlin is also very exciting: As the son of an African, Biko is presumed to be one of the many refugees who've arrived in the city. And all of a sudden, he finds that there is much more at stake than his dream of being a performer ...

Rights sold to China, Vietnam, USA (English rights worldwide)


Wanderlust, an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and enough energy for two lives: Alexander von Humboldt was the greatest traveler and most famous scientist of his time.
The "true discoverer of America” climbed the highest volcanoes, navigated unmapped rivers, discovered the flora and fauna of exotic lands, inspired contemporaries such as Goethe and Darwin, and exchanged ideas with the American president Thomas Jefferson and the freedom fighter Simón Bolívar. This fancifully illustrated book invites us to play the role of Humboldt's traveling companion and lets us marvel at the vast array of life this famous scientist helped to reveal.

With an index and and illustrated directory of historical figures.

Cherry Thief
"It's the luckiest thing in the world that we ended up here, even if the unluckiest thing in the world got us here."
Lotte lives in a forester's house, although her father isn't a forester. The reason is that the war took the life of her cousin Knut's father as well as an eye from the teacher Fettig. Since the horrible Ms. Gressmann has been running the forester's house, many things have been forbidden, such as picking cherries. But Lotte won't let that keep her down.
If you want cherries, you just have to steal them.
And she thinks it's ridiculous that only the boys are allowed to wear Lederhosen.

Gertrude grenzenlos

Getrude Beyond Borders
Who names their child Gertrude?! Gertrude is the new kid in Ina's class and she's different from all the other girls that Ina knows. She's got Western clothes, a smile that'll bowl you over, and the bluest eyes you've ever seen. But Gertrude is also different because her father is a poet and her family has applied for an exit visa. In the DDR of the late 70s, this meant they were enemies of the state. Not only is the school against their friendship, but Ina's mother is up in arms. Things go off the rails.
What to do when you've found the friend of a lifetime but everything's so complicated? Ina and Gertrude forge a plan they call "Commando Rose" to protect their friendship against all odds
