Luna is terribly upset: a flock of crows has moved in and keeps attacking the squirrels in the Summer Forest. She needs to do something!
She and her friends devise a plan to protect the squirrels – with the help of a very special item: an old music book with pieces that may only be played in exceptional circumstances. One of them is titled “Crow Song”. When Luna plays the piece, she gets a terrible fright, because the notes sound vaguely threatening rather than beautiful. Then Luna realises: the piece is intended to drive out crows. After trying a lot of other measure to drive out the crows, she finally decides to use the song against them and makes the forest safe again for the squirrels.

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.

The Illustrator

Lisa Brenner does not have a magical flute, but has been creating magic with pencil and pen since her childhood in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Since earning her degree in communication design, she has to take care that she has enough time for walks through the forest. She usually has so much to do that the barn owls have offered to help her out during the nighttime.
