What is a block of granite doing at the cinema? Why is there such an abundance of mountains in Switzerland? And how does a supposedly Swiss maggot travel all the way to Hong Kong? What really happened at Christmas? Is a dwarf measuring 1.89 metres really a dwarf at all? And precisely where in the world is paradise? The world is full of riddles, each one offering material from which yarns can be spun. The unparalleled master of such storytelling is the great Franz Hohler. His secret is that he takes nothing at face value. He is not afraid of asking even the oddest questions, or of coming up with the most bizarre answers. This is just the way children respond to problems, and his stories will have them laughing long before they are able to read them on their own. And if you read them out loud, you'll find it hard to stop laughing, too.
