The first children´s book by Peter Wohlleben

Explore the woods!

Discover the surprises they hold

Do trees have a language of their own? Do tree children have a nursery? Why are wild animals frightened of people? Peter Wohlleben answers questions that are unusual, original and often very funny. His easy-to-understand and nearly always surprising answers help children to see life in the woods with new eyes. The gifted storyteller draws on his decades of experience as a forest ranger as well as the latest research findings.

An appeal for people to be more mindful in their attitude to the environment, nature protection and sustainability by bestselling author Peter Wohlleben.

Crime in Cornwall!

Brimming with dark humour

The holidays come around at last, and so Pandora can go home to her beloved hotel on the Cornish coast. Unfortunately, things are not looking too rosy for the hotel, which has very few guests at all this summer, and one, who is a little out of the ordinary. He is Phinnaeus Philby, who claims to be a painter in search of a very particular subject. But what is he really after?

The latest stroke of genius from bestselling author Sabine Ludwig!
