Die Reise nach Amerika
The Journey to America
text by Robert Gernhardt
cover and colour illustrations by Philip Waechter
When Gernhardt’s subtle humour meets Waechter’s delightful illustrations, immortal classics are the result. Like the story of four-legged Trulli and his gang of stray dogs who want to sail to America in a bright-red rubber dinghy. Unfortunately, Trulli sets out on his own - well, not quite on his own because a gull goes along with him as a stowaway. That doesn’t suit Trulli at all and the inevitable follows.
A modern new edition of the classic by Robert Gernhardt and Philip Waechter in a larger format!
Robert Gernhardt’s story about bold Trulli on his journey around America and Philip Waechter’s delightful illustrations guarantee some very special fun with this picture book – and not just for children.
