Einmal Erde und zurück

To the Earth and Back

With illustrations by Julian Meyer
Published by Diogenes as Einmal Erde und zurück
Original Title: Einmal Erde und zurück. With illustrations by Julian Meyer

When a child asks: »Why?«, it questions everything we previously thought to be true, turning the world on its head.

A 499 year old child comes from a distant planet, where instead of growing up in the course of their lifetime, the people become children – and therefore sensible beings. The child often finds the inhabitants on earth impossible to understand. Why do they want to disfigure the forest with a road? Why do people have to compete while playing sports, and why do they lock animals up in the zoo? The child tries to put an end to this nonsense. 

A book packed with wordplay and practical jokes; subversive, funny and clever, just as readers both young and old enjoy. Suitable for reading out loud with children, and for them to read alone.
