The garden of apple witch Petronella is a place of wonders for twins Lea and Luis. Shrunk to miniature size, they fly loops on stag beetle Lucius, help the wacky Apple Stick Men with their myriad of not-quite functional buildings – and, of course, they have to help solve the chaos caused by Petronella’s magical spells. It’s a charming world filled with funny and strange creatures where adventure is lurking behind every apple bud and no day is like any other.


Based on the successful book series by Sabine Städing (text) and SaBine Büchner (illustrations).
