Paul the Superhero Paul is very sure: He is a super hero. Pauls parents don‘t believe in his super abilities. Even though Paul is all but a little boy who makes up stories! Paul refills his super hero powers during his way to school. He has to take care not to touch a manhole cover – that would delete his super hero power for this day. And that would be very bad. His mother is not at all aware of this! She pushes him all the time: “Paul, hurry up“, “Paul, don‘t hang behind“. At the same time Paul not only has to watch out not touch a manhole but also to save the world. There is, for example, this strange man he comes across again and again. Paul is absolutely sure that this is an alien. And this alien has only got one thing in his mind: To control the world! Every time Paul passes the alien he murmurs silently: “sit hallelo, sit hallelie“. With this magic spell he destroys any power of the alien, so he can become no danger to anybody. But what is his mother saying? “Don‘t hang behind, Paul, hurry up.“ One day Paul has to save the world again: On the schoolyard. Is Paul really a super hero?

The Un-Bearable Backpack “It would be nice to buy something different,“ Mr. Schnurrbert says to himself, when the handle is torn off of his old shopping basket. “Maybe I should buy myself a backpack, for a change.“ But if you are too trusting, a sneaky fellow like Sam Shopkeeper might tie something other than a backpack onto your back; a voracious bear, for instance! And so equipped, good-natured Mr. Schnurrbert sets off on a wild adventure filled with strange surprises that he that he most certainly didn‘t bargain for...

The Truth of the Elephant Five blind scientists are lying satisfied in the sun after unravelling the meaning of live. Suddenly an elephant steps in front of the sun. “There is an animal or man standing hindering our warming up“, says one of the scientists– the five wouldn’t be scientists, if they weren’t to find out the reasons. The first one is investigating the trunk and says: “It is a firehose of a fire engine. We only have to set a fire and the car will move.“ But already the next scientist represented a complete different opinion. He only touches the legs and is very sure: “In fact, it is a fast growing oak tree.“ The third one only touches the tail and argues this must be a toilet brush, another one touches just the ears and says: “In fact, it is a magic carpet“ – after which the others roll on the floor laughing. But the laughing dies very fast – the five scientists are getting into a big argument…

Educated in a way of monsters To act like monsters is the greatest thing in the world. Monsters act like monsters. Some children act like monsters, too. But children of monsters are most suitable to act like monsters. In monsters schools they learn more about how to make their rooms untidy, how to be unfriendly to adult monsters and of course how to burp. In subjects like ”burping“, ”smell of sweat“ and ”sudden crying in previous silence“ they learn everything a monster has to know. In the kindergarden the teachers already teach the little monsters useful things, for example ”Saying-No“. In this book, children learn how real monsters act – in the attachment they find out the difference between education of monsters and humans. And yes – there are small but nice differences. Humans are shaking hands while looking into their eyes. Monsters would never do this. How monsters welcome each other? We don‘t tell now– but it‘s in “Educated monster-way“…

Red Riding Hood‘s Trick It all begins as in Grimm‘s Brothers‘ fairy tale: Red Riding Hood sets out to visit Grandmother. On her way, she meets the big bad wolf, who licks his lips in anticipation as he imagines her as his next meal. From this point on, the story differs from the original. Red Riding Hood is skilled at making shadow-figures. At precisely the right moment, she frightens the wolf with a clever shadow-figure of a hunter. The frightened wolf escapes before any harm comes to Grand-mother. Red Riding Hood‘s Trick is a fairy tale about a strong, determined girl, with many shadows, impressive illustrations and a surprised wolf.

The tooth, the sock and the astronaut dog That Otto and Maya met each other and want to live together happily until their end of time, could be a coincidence – but don‘t have to be a coincidence. Nevertheless, that Otto‘s dog wants to be an astronaut is surprisingly anyway. The tooth, the sock and the astronaut dog is a book including Otto, his dog, one tooth and Maya of course – things that apparently aren‘t affiliated with each other. But wait and see!
