Marvin is just an average kid: a bit absent-minded, a bit naughty, and with a bit of a tendency to come last in everything. He certainly doesn’t look much like a hero, and he doesn’t know the first thing about fighting battles, finding treasures, or breaking evil spells. Because the Parchment says he is HERO, Gil, Britta and Todd summon him to join the Company of the Distant Lands: together they will defend the Magic Shire against danger… Magic animals that make the reader dream and have fun and a human main character that ease the identification.

Easy and funny stories combining fantasy and humour, with evocative illustrations.
An author of great success, more than 1.5 million copies sold worldwide.
