The third level is for readers who are becoming proficient, with longer chapters and increasingly complex stories, but still with accompanying pictures and highly readable print.

The Author

Leopé is a writer and illustrator who lives in Berlin. He enjoys encounters with people, animals and things that don't really exist, or that are usually overlooked, and turning these encounters into stories. Leopé says about his work: "The nice thing about writing and painting is that it lets me create anything I want."

The Illustrator

Steffen Gumpert was born on a Wednesday in Höxter/Westphalia and had his graduate certificate in Visual Communication handed to him at HAWK Hildesheim on a Saturday. Granted, quite a few years passed between those events. He then moved to Berlin on a Tuesday, where he still lives happily (by now with a family of his own). He brings home his daily bacon as an illustrator, comics artist and cartoonist for various publishers and clients, and occasionally designs characters for animated movies and game developers.
