Grossvaters Karpfen

Introducing my first picture book: this is the story of a seemingly strict grandfather, a much-dreaded family Christmas dinner (the Bavarian kind, as I know it from old family stories) and an enterprising carp… ending on an unexpectedly vegetarian note.

It has been a real treat to spend time writing and illustrating this book and then finally seeing the carp swimming out into the world. All my thanks go to Nicola von Velsen and Random House Germany/Prestel.

To order your copy (it’s in German) either go toßvaters-Karpfen or send me a note via the contact form to get a book directly.
