Product description

Delightfully illustrated children's story in German by the famous author and illustrator.

Der Künstler Janosch wurde 1931 im oberschlesischen Hindenburg unter dem Namen Horst Eckert geboren. Auf der Jesuitenschule war er furchteinflößenden Geschichten über das Fegefeuer und die Qualen der Hölle ausgeliefert. 1946 flohen seine Eltern nach Oldenburg, wo er in Textilfabriken Hemdenstoffe entwarf und das Musterzeichnen lernte. Von 1953 bis 1958 studierte er an der Münchener Kunstakademie - allerdings ohne Abschluss. Sehr wohl fertig wurde 1960 sein erstes Kinderbuch, "Die Geschichte von Valek dem Pferd". Bekannt wurde er spätestens mit "Oh, wie schön ist Panama", für das er 1979 mit dem "Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis" ausgezeichnet wurde. Mit 48 Jahren zog Janosch in ein altes Haus auf Teneriffa, wo er seitdem ein ruhiges Leben führt.

Wonder how this unique item ended up online?

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
