PICTURE BOOK

A madcap mouse called Fritzi – big adventures in itsy-bitsy! Introducing Fritzi the Madcap Mouse! A lively young mouse with plenty of clever ideas is on a mission to win over children’s hearts! In the first two volumes of our new series, the daredevil heroine teaches Grab the cat a lesson, and shows in her own charming way that not everything that looks big is small, and not everything that starts quietly is loud! Sybille Hein has created a bodacious title heroine, who chases across the pages in her own cheeky style. Funny, clever and delightfully drawn.

Sybille Hein was born in Wolfenbüttel in 1970 and is one of Germany’s busiest children’s book artists. She loves telling beautiful and crazy stories for children and adults, both as a writer and as an illustrator. For years, she also demonstrated her many talents as half of the cabaret duo ‘Sybille and the Small Screwball’. She recently began designing children’s clothes and runs a boutique in Berlin, where she lives with her family.

PICTURE BOOK

Even the best argument has to come to an end sometime. Doesn’t it? The animals in the zoo get into an argument, setting off a marvellous chain reaction: the wasp stings the llama, the llama spits at the monkey, the monkey calls the donkey an ass, the donkey kicks the ostrich in the behind and the ostrich bends down and makes a white stain on the vain panther’s suit. There’s biting, scratching and spitting. Until the tiny ant pees on the lion’s leg and the lion gets so angry it roars at the wasp all over again... Will this argument never end? A lively, witty and very wise picture book all about arguing and making up again.

Charlotte Habersack started writing stories at the age of seven. She went on to study German literature and work as a movie editor for television.

A little piece of happiness What is happiness? Linda Wolfsgruber looked into this question in several workshops with children, getting very different answers. Sometimes it’s quite simple, then very complicated, sometimes it’s far removed from everyday life and then it’s very close. It’s certainly very varied, and the illustrator has captured all these happinesses large and small in delightful pictures. A very precious book for several different purposes – for looking at, for wondering at, for giving to friends. “For me, a book is most beautiful when I can surprise myself with my work.” Linda Wolfsgruber on her books

Linda Wolfsgruber, born in Bruneck/South Tyrol in 1961, has been a freelance illustrator, typesetter and graphic designer since 1986.

A hero right out of a book Frome is short, not all that strong and dressed like his father, a tight-lipped shoe salesman. But his head is full of wild thoughts, amazing words, dreams of adventures and shaggy dogs. When Frome finds a strange egg and accidentally incubates it in his pocket, it feels like his life might be getting a tad more exciting. The gang of small, curious creatures that one day hatch out turn pretty much everything upside down, showing Frome that sometimes it’s much better to do than to dream ...

One hot day in August, when Grandma calls in the middle of summer as usual to ask what the family want for Christmas, Mum has had just about enough. ‘We’re celebrating on our own this year!’ she decides.

But then one day, Paul’s little sister Frida comes home from school very upset. Apparently there’s no such thing as Santa; he and his reindeer are all made-up. Paul can only see one way to cheer up his little sister – he has to prove that Santa exists. But it’s not at all easy finding people to support his project...

The streetwise detectives Laura, Wladi, Sema and Kevin have a tricky new case to solve. Pink lipstick, bright eyeshadow and lots and lots of mascara: Laura glams up for her chance at the school band casting and … doesn’t make it to the call-back. Meanwhile, Kevin does get through with a cool hip-hop number. But when he gets hit by a car and taken to hospital, Laura takes his place in the final round. It’s hard to enjoy the unexpected opportunity under such sad circumstances. And another thing seems strange – several other first-round winners also leave the competition unexpectedly. In the end, one of the judges secretly takes Kevin’s bloodstained jacket to the cleaners. That makes it clear as day: this is a case for the Football Pitch Gang.

Daniel Höra’s great utopian novel Since the Great Disaster the sun can only be guessed at, a toxic yellow shimmer behind the dirty grey of the sky. Kjell is nearly fifteen, a soldier with the Black Riflemen. Fighting in this unit is a great honour. When there is no war waging they hunt terrorists, criminals and deviants or put down workers’ uprisings. Now the senate elections are coming up and they are transferred to Berlin to protect the candidates. Rumour has it that the capital city is a noisy and immoral place, with refugees and lawless types of all kinds hiding in the ruins and abandoned districts. Kjell can’t wait to leave this lousy city. But then he finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy and has to disappear swiftly, along with Leela of all people, the unbearable daughter of the chancellor. The two of them flee across the ravaged land, and not only Kjell’s life is turned upside down.

Daniel Höra, born in Hanover, has worked as a removal man, a geriatric nurse, a taxi driver and a television editor. He is now a freelance writer in Berlin. Bloomsbury K&J published his first young adult title Gedisst in 2009.

Astrid Lindgren – everyone knows her books, and she means a great deal to children all over the world. Katrin Hahnemann describes the life of a woman who enchanted readers with her books, but was also a fighter and a role model for many. She certainly didn’t have a picture-book life. It started with an idyllic childhood like in her Bullerbu books, but then Astrid Lindgren had to get by as a single mother. She married but carried on working – and she began to write. Her books went on to alter the image of childhood in the twentieth century. She helped children to be treated with respect. She invented cheeky and non-conformist characters, who are brave and strong but also weak and scared, who fight great battles and win – without the help of adults.

TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF ASTRID LINDGREN’S DEATH ON 28 JANUARY 2012

A life for animals – Jane Goodall When Jane Goodall went into the jungle in 1960 to study and observe chimpanzees for an extensive period of time, she was the first person in the world to do so. Scientists hardly new anything about our closest relatives in the animal kingdom, they did not know how they lived, what they ate and how they behaved. What Jane found out after years of studying chimpanzees contributed immensely to our current knowledge of the differences between humans and animals. Today Jane fights for animal rights: With her organization “Roots and Shoots” she motivates children and young adults to become involved in environment issues in more than 120 countries worldwide.

Katrin Hahnemann studied Literature, Theatre Studies and Journalism. She has worked in the theatre and for the radio programme ‘Ohrenbär’. The Who is…? series includes her biographies of Mahatma Gandhi, Charles Darwin, Martin Luther King, Jane Goodall and Astrid Lindgren. She lives in Berlin. Uwe Mayer is an illustrator living in England and Germany. All the illustrations in the Who is…? series are his work. He has also illustrated numerous children’s books for prominent British publishers.

Should we shake every person’s hand and look them in the eyes when we meet them? That’s only a must here in Europe and North America; in other places, this gesture can easily cause problems. And how do the Japanese manage to give three hundred gifts a year, while we have trouble keeping up with birthdays and Christmas? Despite our multicultural cities, globalization and the internet, people still live in different cultures and all of them have their own rules. But this cultural diversity is also a treasure chest for humankind, showing us how many possibilities there are. Wolfgang Korn takes us on a trip through the different cultures, providing insight into ethnological research, and we learn: It’s perfectly normal to be different.

What holds our World in Place There are a lot of materials that hold our world in place and which we use every day. But wood has always been particularly involved in our lives. This book tells you about this special material which we humans have used in a great variety of ways and which still today gives us big ideas. While reading this book we learn about the exploitation of forests, about worldwide wood trade and its disastrous outcomes. The book revives an old dresser and makes it shine in new splendour, it shows us what we can read off annual rings.
