Krähe und Bär oder die Sonne scheint für uns alle
Crow and Bear. The Sun Shines for Us All
text by Martin Baltscheit
cover and illustrations by Wiebke Rauers
Profound, surprising and absolutely hilarious! The bear is envied for his lazy life at the zoo – three meals every day so that he never has to go to sleep hungry. And yet he would much rather be free, like the crow. She offers him the chance of his life, to switch bodies! Very soon, the crow bear discovers that good manners are a total waste of time in the wild, and the bear crow not only eats herself fat, but unhappy, too. And so in the end, the pair make the free decision to share full board at the zoo.
Philosophical subjects given entertaining, child-appropriate treatment with brilliant, imaginative illustrations!
