  • The second book of Patricia Mennen and Betina Gotzen Beek about dragon

Who says that only cowards can be scared? Even a powerful dragon like Hissi is sometimes worried to death, especially on high monkey bars. While all his friends are jumping around, Hissi has to stay on the ground and watch them play. This is so frustrating that he decides then and there to not be a scared dragon anymore. And soon he begins to discover how to turn fear into courage...

This story by Patricia Mennen shows how little dragon Hissi learns how to deal with fear and is able to overcome them with a little help from his family.

Kalle Beetle

A Story of Being Different

Kalle Beetle is not very fast and misfortunes happens to him all the time because he was born with one of his legs the wrong way around. His friends get pretty impatient, sometimes laugh at him and say: “He is always so different!” It is not before they go on a trip into the deep forest that Kalle can prove himself. He is the only one who is not afraid of the toad’s eyes glowing from within a cave. And later, when his friends realize nervously that they have gotten lost, Kalle shows them the right way home. A wonderful book that supports self-confidence and individuality.
