Notes

  • A story about audacity and courage that motivates little children to be brave
  • With a song from the author and well-known actor Max von Thun

On the smallest planet of all in a very far away galaxy lives the Keeper of Stars. Every night he carefully spreads the stars in the sky and lightens them one after the other. One night, after having spread the widest stars he realizes that he lost the smallest star of all. He starts looking for her all around the sky, here and there, until he finds out she was hiding in his bed all this time. "No one notices if I am gone anyway", says the smallest star of all. And yet the Keeper of Stars knows it is quite the contrary...

The Keeper of Stars and the Fearless Princess

The Keeper of Stars lives on a tiny planet, in a distant galaxy. His work is to make the stars shine and distribute them in the sky at night. But one day, the Keeper of Stars notices a flicker in the sky. Very far away: a comet is heading straight to the stars and to the earth. Humans are in great danger!
Luckily the Keeper of the stars meets a courageous princess who is ready to help him in this new adventure! The only way to protect the stars and the Earth is to redirect the comet towards the sun: it will disintegrate because of the heat.
