It’s an ordinary day in the Truthful Wood, and the animals are doing what they always do: gathering food, sweeping their dens and fixing their garden fences. None of them notices that something unusual is going on: a strange creature has appeared at the edge of the wood, dragging a heavily loaded cart. Only Zara the squirrel sees the street rat – dressed in smart trousers and a scarf that smells of the big city – set up a stage, with a sign reading: "A new adventure every night!" Little does she know that Minna Melon is about to turn the animals’ lives upside down with her fantastical stories.

• Inspires readers to broaden their horizons and challenge prejudice

• Key message: you can achieve anything – all you have to do is join in and use your imagination

• An ingenious and lyrical story by bestselling author Sven Gerhardt

• With brightly coloured illustrations by up-and-coming artist Mareike Ammersken

Sven Gerhardt, born in 1977, would very much have liked to have been a scoundrel himself, but then decided to make a living by honest means. After several years in advertising, he now works as a graphic designer and writer. He finds there is nothing better than a well designed children's book with amusing illustrations and a super story. His wife and three children – who incidentally have no similarity with the Haystack Scoundrels – see it the same way.

After completing her training in social pedagogy and working as a nursery school teacher, Mareike Ammersken, born in 1992, decided to study illustration at HAW Hamburg. Book illustration has always been particularly close to her heart. Her atmospheric illustrations are inspired by long walks with her dog and the many encounters with a wide variety of people from her everyday professional life.

Making sport a child's game! - Promotes mobility and helps against lack of exercise

Let's bring movement into the children's room! Do we want to stalk like a tiger, waddle like a duck or stride like a crane? Imitating animals is great fun! At the same time, we're also doing something for our minds and bodies. And afterwards we feel really good and relaxed! These 16 movement exercises promise to promote attention and language development in a playful way, while at the same time preventing a lack of movement and increasing our own well-being.

Hanjo Fritzsche works as a personal trainer and health coach in Munich. With his "Stand Up&Move!" concept he brings movement into companies and has been making people fitter and happier with his "boot camp workouts" for over 10 years. Through his teacher training studies (sports/English) and his past time as a youth basketball coach, he has a special connection to children. Hanjo loves broccoli, the Isar river and unicorns.

"A bit of picture book, a bit of non-fiction and a bit of fitness primer: "Jump like a kangaroo!" combines it all."

Abendzeitung München

Ruby Fairygale's first adventure – lovingly and excitingly told, with many atmospheric illustrations.

Eight-year-old Ruby Fairygale lives on a small island near the west coast of Ireland. After school, she helps her grandmother, who works as a veterinarian. But the two of them have a big secret: they know that the island is home not only to animals but also to magical mythical creatures that need their help. Summer vacation at last! Now Ruby can spend the whole day helping her grandma. Not only do they take care of animals, but also fairies, goblins and other mythical creatures! It's not easy to keep this secret – especially from Briana, the most unfriendly girl in Ruby's class. When her father's fishing nets are destroyed, Briana suspects a pack of seals and is determined to drive them away. But Ruby suspects that something else is behind this. Something completely magical ... And sure enough: a little mermaid has become entangled in the fishing net! Can Ruby still stop Bri without revealing her secret?

Kira Gembri was born in Vienna in 1990, the second oldest of five children. She remained faithful to this beautiful city even after completing her studies in Comparative Literature.

She shares her love of books with her little daughter, who is a firm believer in fairy tales. By the way, there are no mythical creatures living with her – but there is a cat who was definitely a goblin in his former life.

"Kira Gembri tells an entirely innocent story about two teenagers who are both trapped in their loneliness, which is teeming with mythical creatures."

Mathias Ziegler, Wiener Zeitung
