The Tiny Giant and the Tall Dwarf

The Tiny Giant and the Tall Dwarf

Kleiner Rieseby Barbara Nascimbeni & Werner Holzwarth

When someone living in the land of the giants is small, he’ll have a hard time. Just like someone who turns out very tall in the land of the dwarves. The giants laugh about the short one, the dwarves ridicule the tall one.

A vividly told story that explains the issue of being different to the youngest of readers – humorously and in a fabulous colourful and vibrant scenery.

A fairy-tale-like story with a topic that is particularly important in the daily lives of the target audience: friendship and being different. Brightly coloured […] with very clear and large illustrations this is a perfect book to read to children and it offers starting points for a group discussion. Reading pleasure for big and small dwarves! – Leipziger Lesekompass

The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew it Was None of His Business

by Wolf Erlbruch & Werner Holzwarth  vom kleinen Maulwurf

When the little mole discovers a pile of, well, pooh, on his head, he is absolutely certain that it doesn’t belong to him, but sets out on a mission to discover who exactly the culprit really is. His investigation takes him into the world of many animals as he wanders and compares the pile on his head to the piles that the other animals leave behind them.

Outrageously funny, this cracking little book is an absolute delight and not only gives children the chance to talk about one of their favourite topics for discussion, but is also an intriguing way of introducing the idea of a nature trail, taking them on a trip that will leave them both laughing and learning.
