Bits and bobs Lenny just has bits and bobs in his mind. This is Hilda’s opinion who lives in the park which Lenny needs to pass on his way to school every day. Constantly Lenny has funny and sometimes crazy ideas. When the summer holidays start, he has to visit his grand mum who lives at the countryside. Lenny desperately imagines a summer full of nature and boredom. But everything will be different like he envisions before – a wild goat, a new enemy and mysterious figure in the Grimmelwald are just small adventures with which Lenny is faced with during summer. But then there occurs a real danger which threatens the beautiful Grimmeltal. Motivated by granny’s fantastic cherry pie and the bits and bobs in his head Lenny is ready to face every challenge.
