Jeder ist verwundbar! Was für ein mächtiger Drache: Schneller als jeder Vogel kann er mit seinem Atem ganze Wälder niederbrennen und mit einem einzigen Schwanzschlenkern dicke Burgmauern einstürzen lassen. Aber er hat ein grosses, beziehungsweise winzig kleines Geheimnis: Er fürchtet sich schrecklich vor Mäusen! Wieder einmal hat er eine Prinzessin geraubt und ahnt nicht, dass unterdessen in der Höhle nebenan George, ein Mäuserich, eingezogen ist. Als der beim neuen Nachbarn vorbeikommt, weil ihm der Zucker für seinen Tee ausgegangen ist, flüchtet der Drache entsetzt. Und statt in der zugigen Höhle darf George nun in der Burgmauer wohnen und wird mit allem verwöhnt, was er sich wünscht. Denn seine blosse Gegenwart verwandelt den schrecklichen Drachen in ein Häufchen Elend! Die herrlichen Bilder kommen mit wenig Text aus, und bei beiden kommt der Humor nicht zu kurz. Eine köstliche Drachengeschichte mit einer unerwarteten Wendung, denn wer freut sich nicht, wenn der angeblich Unbesiegbare auch seine Schwächen hat? Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger.

Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian

Wie gut, dass Ella ihrer Mama zur Hand geht, die ist nämlich die Allerallerbeste auf der Welt und immer guter Laune - nur mit dem Zaubern, da hapert es manchmal ein bisschen.

Eine Gebrauchsanleitung in Sachen Liebe sollte wirklich endlich mal jemand schreiben!, findet die 16-jährige Penelope, als sie mit Karacho in ihre erste große Liebesgeschichte reinrauscht und, ohne über Los zu gehen, erst wieder an der Abfahrt »Herzensleid« zum Stehen kommt. Darauf bereitet einen wirklich keiner vor, weder Eltern noch Lehrer noch sonst wer von den angeblich so Erwachsenen. Genau betrachtet haben die nämlich auch kein Patentrezept in Sachen Liebe parat. Also beschließt Penelope, selbst dieses Buch zu schreiben, die Geschichte ihrer großen Liebe und deren Scheitern, entlang an all den kleinen Erinnerungsstücken, die sich durch Penelopes Liebesleben ziehen: vom ersten Händchenhalten im Kindergarten über den ersten kumpelig-peinlichen Kuss mit 11, bis hin zum ultimativen Date mit Mr Right.
