The first children´s book by Peter Wohlleben

Explore the woods...

...and 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.

TOP TITLE *** New Romantasy Trilogy *** AGE 14+

DivineSpark - Don´t Love Me

The first book in a new romantasy trilogy

For this summer, Jess had really only planned a couple of lazy weeks in the Rocky Mountains. But then she meets good-looking Cayden, the boy with the emerald-green eyes, and he steals her heart away.  But Cayden has his own agenda. He’s the son of a god and has made a pact with Zeus: only if he can find a girl able to resist his charms will Zeus grant Cayden’s dearest wish: to finally become mortal. Will Cayden play to win his game with the gods even if it costs Jess her heart?

DivineSpark is the ideal blend of dream material for the target readership: a deep, world-encompassing love that must not be, a self-assured heroine, and a (seemingly) inaccessible hero every girl reading this story will sigh for.

Alea Aquarius

Off to Iceland!

Suspense guaranteed

Alea and the Alpha Cru set sail for the far north. Alea hopes she will at last find her father there and, with him, the answers to all the questions going round and round inside her head. But when the Alpha Cru reaches its destination, Alea is forced to face up to her past. And that’s not all; there she also encounters the mysterious Doctor Orion, who is researching the deadly virus that destroyed the merfolk. With his help, can Alea make her dearest wish come true and restore the merfolk to life? And will Lennox help her put her plan into action? Alea senses that he’s keeping something from her and that’s really putting their love to the test.
