Luca is a little creature who lives in the woods around Merano with a gang of strange characters who are friends of his. One day, after accidentally falling out of a tree, he is found by Simon and his adventures then really begin. The story of Luca and the presumptuous Professor Merolo unfolds against the backdrop of the city of Merano, across the botanical gardens of Gilf Promenade right through to the city centre, amidst picture postcard landscapes with towering mountains in the distance. Michael Heinze's writing and Kantrin Stangl's bright illustrations guide readers through the shimmering colours and endless shades of green of the Merano woodlands, following Luca on this entertaining adventure.
