Produktinformationen "After the Party"
“That was a great party! My next birthday is only 52 Sundays, 12 months, 4 seasons away. Oh! 365 days…or is that 366?” says the bear. The party is barely over, but the bear is waiting impatiently for his next birthday, along with his friend, the hedgehog. The two of them go on an imaginary journey through the concepts of time – days, months and seasons. A lively story full of humour and clever pictures.
The generous font size and short, simple sentences make “After the Party” ideal for Early Readers. It is also great fun to read aloud.

Lilo and Balz
Episodes from Lilo and Balz’s everyday life are told in graphic-novel style. The two schoolkids are best friends, and together they play, fight, dream, fall sick, and get up to all kinds of mischief. They have lots of clever ideas, too, like building a soapbox cart, throwing boomerangs, exploring caves, or playing pranks. The speech-bubble texts are short, making for an easy and enjoyable reading experience.Translation from German by Simon Froehling and Anna Sophie Wendel
And What Can I Do? – The Little Cat and the Star
It’s cold outside. The little cat is sitting on the warm stove in the living room. She hears people talking about a newborn king. Following a star in the dark night sky, the little cat sets off to find him. On the way, she meets an owl, a spider, a dog, some sheep, a cow, some herbs and some bees, and asks them for directions. They each ask the same discouraging question in return: What can a little cat possibly offer a newborn king? For the little cat, the central questions become “Who am I? And what can I do? What can I bring?” A rich and meaningful Christmas story that encourages children to think about their own abilities. Translation from German by Lucretia Jacomet
Wanda takes off
Wanda finds a piece of paper with some notes on it. She pretends that she can read, but what she’s actually good at is fibbing. The large-scale illustrations capture the animals’ expressions and emotions with stunning effect and are accompanied by short text in large font size.Author Lorenz Pauli and illustrator Kathrin Schärer are a well-established team who have created many beautiful children’s books. In 2017 they received the annual Swiss Children’s and Youth Book Award. This entertaining book is an excellent introduction to reading.Translation from German by Shelley Frisch
The Mouse and the Lion
When the lion wakes up and is about to eat the mouse, the mouse begs for mercy and proposes a deal: If the lion lets her go, she’ll come to his aid one day. The lion laughs – how could a tiny mouse ever help a mighty animal like him? But soon he is forced to change his tune.Adapted from the fable by the Greek poet Aesop, this tale is as relevant today as it was when he wrote it down over 2,500 years ago. Short lines, simple sentence structure and generous font size make this fable very manageable for Early Readers.
