Lawrence spends holidays in the mysterious villa of his grandmother at the lake. Between mountains and forests, he is unexpectedly drawn into the greatest adventure of his life. The mysterious stone of truth, that he found under mysterious circumstances, seems closely linked with the history of his family, and Lawrence must make the surprising realization that he has a superhuman task to fullfill. A large, dark magician does everything he can to close the gate between the old and new worlds to expand its ominous dark kingdom. Just one boy has the right to use the stone of truth, and could prevent the disaster. Otherwise, the old world would be lost forever. Fortunately, Lawrence hasn´t only a number of good spirits and a giant shaggy dog at his side, but also the best companion you could wish for: the neighbor kids Miri and Simon. And so the three friends go forward to an incredible adventure!

Granny Bilba is living in buildung that looks like a big crocodile. Although the high-rise building is extremely ugly, Lotti loves spending her afternoons at Bilba’s. They always cook together and provide all the neighbours with their tasty meals. Everything seems to be perfect but then, a Gorilla moves into one of the empty apartments downstairs and it’s the exact same guy who always causes trouble in school. And why is he now also standing in Bilba’s kitchen? Lotti must do something. But what? Maybe a cooking contest could help to get rid of the gorilla.
