Daisy and Drago have woken a young hedgehog from hibernation and Luna is more than busy setting things right again. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Luna’s magic flute is stolen and she loses the ability to talk to animals. A disaster. Who is the mean thief? To get her flute back, Luna needs a strong ally and is forced to trust the person she is afraid of the most: Julius Jupiter, the strange flute teacher.

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.

Lisa Brenner does not have a magical flute, but has been creating magic with pencil and pen since her childhood in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

She usually has so much to do that the barn owls have offered to help her out during the nighttime.
