PRINCESS IS COMING AT FOUR
WOLFDIETRICH SCHNURRE

A love story which is full of grace and affection. Stuffed toys such as bunnies, puppies and kitties are usually broadly and warmly welcomed in picture books for children. But, what about a disgusting hyena?

Wolf Dietrich Schnurre writes a wonderful role for the hyena, showing us a being with odd stripes which lives in captivity at the zoo in dire need of affection. However, this monstrous –miserable, lonely, shy - being is enchanted.

Desperately, the hyena gets an invitation to have dinner from a pleasant guy who is wearing a strange cap. The hyena is so moved that tears fall on her cheeks when she discover the beautiful garden roses placed on the table by his well-meaning host. And… what will happen afterwards?
