About the Series

The Luna Wunderwald series takes place in a magnificent location: in the middle of the forest. The heroine Luna has been chosen to play a magical flute that allows her to communicate with the forest animals. She comes to their rescue when an animal is in danger or needs help. The stories combine magical realism with environmental themes for girls 8 and up.
