If elephants fly through the air like butterflies and Margareth the wild boar goes for a stroll in her frilly skirt … If wild, free mermaids watch Donald Duck, and Fischer Fritz has swimming races with one-wheeled fish … Then we are there, where the collarbone and cowslip are friends, a very special place.

There are many ways to say “good night“. Michael Roher‘s fanciful images and rhymes make bedtime fun. The affectionately detailed illustrations are a wonderful invitation to carry on dreaming—to invent, contort and marvel in the comfort of your own warm bed.

“The twelve good-night poems show great imagination and a multifaceted inner world. They emanate great warmth and security. […] Like the texts, the drawings in collage style also stand out due to an exuberant fantasy, wit, charm and a blithe lightheartedness“ – Die Furche
