During class, Wanda

During class, Wanda needs to go to the loo. To check out her neighbour, she peaks underneath the dividing wall: big, black shoes, black socks, black trousered legs – an outrageous company! Soon everybody has heard the bad news: a suit zombie has occupied the school loo. One has to say that the loo had already been quite uncomfortable before, but the school inspector hadn’t answered Wanda’s complaint letter. After a juice boycott and other ineffective ways to avoid the loo, Wanda takes the reins: ideas are being collected, danger signs put up, study groups established and the gym occupied. Nobody could have foreseen that the school inspector is wearing exactly those big black shoes, or that he has taken Wanda’s complaint under close consideration … Saskia Hula Occupied !

Una‘s life has been one big catastroph since the arrival of the baby. Nobody cares about her any more! She wants a bike that works. She wants a mommy who has time for her. And she wants a daddy who plays with her before dinner. So Una has three important wishes. And what do you need if you have three wishes? Una ceremoniously begs, „Good fairy, please come and fulfill three wishes!“ „Hoohooo,“ says a bright little voice from somewhere down in the grass, „Here! On the bellflower!“ … And there it is. On the top leaf of the flower there sits a tiny little creature, not taller than Una‘s forefinger. „What sort are you?“ asks Una, quite puzzled. – „I am an elf,“ answers the little creature proudly. Una can‘t help herself, she bursts out laughing. The little creature angrily furrows her brow. „What‘s so funny about that?“ – „Oh, it‘s quite simple,“ says Una grinning. „You just cannot be an elf. Elves are delicate, fragile beings,“ Una repeats from her book. „They hover above flowers and grass like butterflies!“ – „So what?“ This is the beginning of Una‘s friendship with the little elf, which lures her on to the most exciting adventures. This thrilling story about the brash little elf with its bright and joyful color illustrations by Susanne Wechdorn is a favorite for all children.
