The collection of short stories about a little rabbit Karlchen was written by Rotraut Susanne Berner, a renowned German illustrator, who is also this year's winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Award. The roguish Karlchen is like almost all children. He asks a lot of questions, he is polite, but also stubborn and he constantly makes up some extraordinary things Sometimes he can be even sad, but soon his mood improves and he becomes happy again; well, and now and then, he can also become really unmanageable. He is only four years old, but he already wants to go to school. Sometimes he doesn't want to put on his shoes, or spits out his chewing gum on the pavement. These are the stories of the family, full of humour and heartiness. Although they are seemingly simple, they are interwoven with the precious moments children easily identify with and take them as their own. Karlchen is exactly the same as we all once used to be.
