Der schaurige Schusch
- A story that plays with words while helping us see our own prejudices and fears
- Also available as board book
ContentHe hasn’t even moved in yet, but all the animals already have the same opinion: Someone like the gripsy doesn’t belong here on Mount Blockhead. They’ve heard he is giant and grumpy with shaggy fur. And on top of that, people say he kisses like a maniac. And that is why none of them go to his housewarming party. But the party rabbit just cannot resist the invitation. When he still hasn’t returned after four hours, everyone is certain that they’ll never see the rabbit again. But then the door opens and a little, tiny, sweet little gripsy thanks the rabbit for a lovely evening. In fact, he is a very likeable guy! All the friends have to laugh because they were afraid of him and had circulated so many rumors without having even met him. But one rumor about the gripsy proves to be true: he does indeed kiss like a maniac...
