The Life of a Porpoise in the North Sea
Der kleine Schweinswal 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.

Zeppelin.The Legendary Story of Hindenburg
Mit dem Zeppelin nach New York
Frankfurt, 1936: Werner Franz is fourteen years old. He has just finished school and is looking for work. Werner is delighted when he is hired as a cabin boy on the Hindenburg, the largest of all the German zeppelins. A few days later, he sees a zeppelin up close for the first time. His first journey takes him across the Atlantic Ocean to Rio de Janeiro. Along the way, he meets and befriends his crewmates, and is taught everything he needs to know about zeppelins. Why does a zeppelin stay up in the air? How can it be steered? And, most importantly for Werner, what are his duties on board? As a cabin boy, Werner has to take care of the passengers, wash the dishes and serve the officers, but despite his busy schedule, he loves his job. However, a catastrophe is just around the corner. Another trip takes the Hindenburg to New York. During the attempted landing, the zeppelin goes up in flames. Werner manages to jump out of the burning zeppelin and survives without major injuries. He returns to Germany with the other surviving crewmates.

Schau mal, eine Spinne!
In this lovingly illustrated nonfiction picture book, children can observe how a garden spider spins her artful web, how she goes hunting, mates, and lays eggs- and how, finally, the tiny spider babies hatch and are taken by the wind on a long journey.
The foldout pages hide even more interesting information about the garden spider and its eight-legged relatives: how can you tell the difference between males and females?
What is a spider web actually made of? The book includes a discoverer’s journal that invites young readers to do their own spider research.
