FABER’S TREASURE – a new picture book by Cornelia Funke and illustrated by Susanne Goehlich
One day, Faber’s grandfather, who used to be a sailor and whom everybody believes to be a bit crazy, gives him a strange present before leaving for his retirement in the US. He gives him a carpet, a magic carpet. Faber only has to read the words out loud which are embroidered on the carpet and it will take him wherever he would like to. There is just one problem: nobody seems to be able to read the words – until Faber meets a girl from Syria who is able to help. She reads the words aloud and suddenly the carpet lifts off and the children fly away on it.
