Product description

German text of 'Kingfishers', translated from Czechoslovakian by Blanka Fantara. Illustrations by Mirko Hanak. The Czechoslovak writer Karel Novy tells of these magnificent birds in this book. Even as a boy, the author had a look for the trees, rocks, streams and their inhabitants. On the way to school, he listened to the life of the animals as he had encountered, and took a special love for the nimble kingfishers, who are not easy to watch because of their timidity. He studied with great patience how the kingfisher lives and where he lives. In Novy's story, a whole year is alive.
