Welcome to Ludwigs Adventures! Since my two daughters heard the stories from Ludwig the elephant, Norbert the rhino and their friends every night in form of a freely told bedtime story, both pachyderms have almost become an integral part of our family. And because these two always took good care not only as "protection animals" in the nocturnal dream adventures of our daughters, but also as good examples of exemplary behaviour and almost always went with best by example, the binding with them grew further. This also drove strange flowers when for example our Great (when she had just turned 3), with full conviction stated that she now no longer needs her pacifiers because her friend Ludwig indeed needed no pacifier, too. The story of how it came about this, perhaps give room for another book. Well, because the relationship with the two grew stronger, the thought of one of their stories just grew until it was times to start painting. This is how it came to this first book of Ludwig. What is it about? The book deals with the epic tales of Ludwig and his pals, about a small elephant named Ludwig and about a small part of his large circle of friends such as "Nuhir" - the jumpy mouse and "Huhu" - the anxious owl. In this story, Ludwig helps Nuhir and Huhu to identify their fears and to finally defeat them. Once on a night around the campfire the owl Huhu , frightened by a thunderstorm disappeared. Ludwig and Nuhir on the search for her, meet a wide variety of "threats" and "fears", which all turn out to be unfounded and help the two to find her friend Huhu in the end. A creepy snake turns out to be just as helpful as friendly same as a scary big spider or the wild horde of monkeys. At the end of the story all these primal fears help the two to find Huhu in an exciting, adventurous way. During this adventure, many different friends are following our heroes Nuhir, Huhu and Ludwig through each page. From "Schulz" the colourful butterfly to "Frohdo" the frog or "Fridolin" the tiny spider over many more that are hidden on each side. By searching for these hidden animals throughout each page, the younger readers also have even more fun with this book. For whom? First of all this book was done for my daughters Alina and Milla! Then we thought that our sponsored children probably would also be happy to get a customized version. Well, and since their feedback was quite positive, we gave first copies into our circle of close friends. When finally nothing but good feedback was given (even from the "critical" circle of friends), the book was also published online. The initially publication as e-book in the popular app stores did then lead to a search for a potential publisher.Fridolins BruderHowever, the target group remains the same: Basically it is children aged 2-8 years who enjoy being read interesting and funny stories or just like to look at pretty pictures. Searching for hidden small animals within each page is given and thus makes the book even interesting for younger ages. While our big one (5 years) listens to the rhymes and overall story, our little one (3 years) is searching for hiding places of spider "Fridolin", fast snail "Sebastian" or "Schulz" the butterfly. So both girls are somehow caught within the book. For the target group of English-speaking children here is the english version. By whom? Basically, we can describe this book best as a joint family project. After the story was largely determined by the interests and wishes of our two daughters, the first sketches and drafts, as well as the rough storyline was created by Papa "uTZFu". After this, the technical language skills of my wife made a beautiful rhyming story out of it, and after the rough layout and format was defined, uTZFu started painting. The entire book was made on a Tablet Notebook and one (sometimes two) finger(s), and was converted in connection with the simplest of means.

Aristotle characterized the elephant as “the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind” and the animal has long figured in cultural artifacts, even on continents it has never inhabited. Now Elephant provides an engaging look at the elephant’s long legacy. The image of the elephant can be found throughout world cultures as a symbol of intelligence, strength, and loyalty. Wylie draws on a rich array of examples to document that symbolic power, ranging from symbols of the Hindu god of wisdom, Ganesh, to the beloved children’s works Dumbo and Babar the Elephant. Turning to the elephant’s biological history, Wylie describes the three remaining species—the African Bush Elephant, African Forest Elephant, and the Asian Elephant—and the controversial efforts for elephant conservation. With ivory poaching and human encroachment into the animal’s natural habitats, Wylie argues that we face a uniquely poignant conservation crisis in which elephants and humans both unsustainably consume limited natural resources. A compelling new entry in the Animal series, Elephant will be necessary for every animal lover’s bookshelf.

An “exciting” true account of battling the elephant poachers of Zambia by the author of Where the Crawdads Sing and her fellow biologist (The Boston Globe). Intelligent, majestic, and loyal, with lifespans matching our own, elephants are among the greatest of the wonders gracing the African wilds. Yet, in the 1970s and 1980s, about a thousand of these captivating creatures were slaughtered in Zambia each year, killed for their valuable ivory tusks. When biologists Mark and Delia Owens, residing in Africa to study lions, found themselves in the middle of a poaching fray, they took the only side they morally could: that of the elephants. From the authors of Secrets of the Savanna, The Eye of the Elephant is “part adventure story, part wildlife tale,” recounting the Owens’s struggle to save these innocent animals from decimation, a journey not only to supply the natives with ways of supporting their villages, but also to cultivate support around the globe for the protection of elephants (The Boston Globe). Filled with daring exploits among disgruntled hunters, arduous labor on the African plains, and vivid depictions of various wildlife, this remarkable tale is at once an adventure story, a travelogue, a preservationist call to action, and a fascinating examination of both human and animal nature.

There are many smiles and now readers can examine the Barbarian smile/s at the end of each chapter. This work is a continuing look at the ups and downs of modernization in Thailand. Said progress makes Thailand one of the better choices for expat residence. The reason so far has been high-tech and low prices. This is a heady mix and attracts many foreigners even for medical care. As things change quickly, especially in Bangkok, it is good to have frequent updates as to the people, culture and events. The Smile/s books aim at analysis and humor at the same time. In the beginning with Siam Smile/s the focus was mainly on Thais and their bags of tricks. The effort was to give foreigners a clue as to what to expect through comical situations. However, after assiduously studying local people, it finally comes about that the Barbarians, those wonderful Western visitors, are worthy of a good look as well. The result has been a succinct glimpse of how simple European-US people have a difficult time with the basics of complex Thai culture. At the same time, Thais wedged into their modality bio-stasis have no idea about the Barbarians visitors or of their cultures. At times it nearly causes vertigo to spot Thais doing Mental Erase to things they don’t like and foreigners going toe-to-toe with them using denial. Most humorous of all is when Thais and Barbarians simultaneously dodge reality. Reality is the serious Adult world not the denial, pretending and dodging that many Thais and aliens engage in every day. All of this points to a planetary meltdown and human IQ in the West down many points. In the end, Bird Poop Farang Smile/s is a kind of manual for those who appreciate cultural tools and are ready to have a good laugh.

As thrilling as any novel, as taut and exciting as any adventure story, Peter Hathaway Capstick’s Death in the Long Grass takes us deep into the heart of darkness to view Africa through the eyes of one of the most renowned professional hunters. Few men can say they have known Africa as Capstick has known it—leading safaris through lion country; tracking man-eating leopards along tangled jungle paths; running for cover as fear-maddened elephants stampede in all directions. And of the few who have known this dangerous way of life, fewer still can recount their adventures with the flair of this former professional hunter-turned-writer. Based on Capstick’s own experiences and the personal accounts of his colleagues, Death in the Long Grassportrays the great killers of the African bush—not only the lion, leopard, and elephant, but the primitive rhino and the crocodile waiting for its unsuspecting prey, the titanic hippo and the Cape buffalo charging like an express train out of control. Capstick was a born raconteur whose colorful descriptions and eye for exciting, authentic detail bring us face to face with some of the most ferocious killers in the world—underrated killers like the surprisingly brave and cunning hyena, silent killers such as the lightning-fast black mamba snake, collective killers like the wild dog. Readers can lean back in a chair, sip a tall, iced drink, and revel in the kinds of hunting stories Hemingway and Ruark used to hear in hotel bars from Nairobi to Johannesburg, as veteran hunters would tell of what they heard beyond the campfire and saw through the sights of an express rifle.

Chaya, a no-nonsense, outspoken hero, leads her friends and a gorgeous elephant on a noisy, fraught, joyous adventure through the jungle where revolution is stirring and leeches lurk. Will stealing the queen's jewels be the beginning or the end of everything for the intrepid gang? With cover illustration by David Dean. "The Girl Who Stole an Elephant is as rich, dazzling and alluring as a pouchful of royal jewels, and as triumphant as a trumpeting elephant! I loved it!" - Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken Legs "A glorious fast-paced adventure through the jungle. I love Chaya's spirit and determination and the friendships that are built along the way. I feel I am there with Chaya and her friends. The Girl Who Stole an Elephant is adventuring at its best; a mystery, a jewel thief, and escape into the jungle with an elephant at your side." - Gill Lewis, author of Sky Hawk "Chaya, schoolgirl by day, thief by night, will steal your heart in this incredibly assured debut that's packed with adventure, friendship, and loyalty." - Aisha Bushby, author of A Pocketful of Stars "This exciting debut, set on the lush island of ancient Sri Lanka, introduces us to a kick-ass heroine in Chaya, a young girl who robs the rich to help the poor in local villages Richly atmospheric, full of colour and passion, Farook is a writer to watch." - Sally Morris, The Daily Mail "Farook embeds her message in a cracking narrative and never lets us feel we're being preached to Farook does not beat around the bush. "Chaya looked at the bronze spear pointing at her neck," reads the novel's first sentence and in the ensuing 48 chapters, the pace rarely slackens. But she allows every character time to unravel, resulting in a deceptively dense adventure that will appeal to readers well into their teens." Emily Bearn, The Telegraph "The Girl Who Stole an Elephant positively rustles with the textures of rural Sri Lanka. It introduces an author keen to write a love letter to her culture, and upend preconceptions too More like this, please." - The Observer
