Leonie is spending the summer holidays with her aunt and makes new friends on her way with the two boys Moritz and Einstein, as well as Sarah who is travelling with her dad. After they decide to take a supposed short cut through the woods they discover a weirdly discoloured patch of plants. Despite the danger the kids are dedicated to solve the mystery of the blue forest.
In 2021 I was approached by the Austrian publisher E. Weber to illustrate this environmental mystery story for tweens, including the cover and monochrome illustrations for each chapter. Great communication with the publisher made for an enjoyable collaboration and quick work.
