bilingual book with birdsWebmaster Book News: In preparation - the Zettelwitz books for Europe.
Because I love watching birds, I made Zettelwitz, the hero of my books, into a bird watcher, too. This childish wizard develops into a decent man, because he loves Ronja and - to his surprise - he feels much better being liked for his useful craft, than hated for his cruel jokes.
Zettelwitz - Table Mountain Wizard by Rosemarie Breuer, in German and English
and Die Towenaar van Tafelberg - Table Mountain Wizard in Afrikaans and English
with 74 Illustrations by the author and 60 bird illustrations by Jill Adams
Now also available as e-books in several formats.
Zettelwitz Kindle versions in German and English (3. edition, September 2013):

The Table Mountain photo on the cover was provided by Awie Badenhorst.

An outdated pirated pdf of Zettelwitz can be found all over the Net. Please do me the favour to compare it to the new version, bought from me or Kindle.

Your book is absolutely brilliant! I can't wait to have children and will save it for them! Fantastic that you are also doing American and European versions.
