The star immigrant and artist Ziggy is a refugee in the intergalactic sense.
Driven from his home planet he tries to find a job on various foreign planets and finds himself confronted with cultures, most of which do not suit his talents and ideas.
At least his adventurous journey is accompanied by his caring friend Bowie, a small unicorn.
Over 288 pages the author tells an unbelievable fantastic story full of hints and philosophical interpretations and masterful drawings!
This is Jaja´s LARGEST book!
This story about the adventurous blue mouse and her journey into the unknown is written in both languages (German, English). Originally the story was written in french by Stéphanie Joho.
The illustrations are of a very special kind: All 12 images have been composed with colorful, patterned fabrics and handcrafted by textile artist Anita
If you like to marvel at the unknown, ask questions, collect experiences and chuckle with the little blue mouse, then you´re invited to a funny and horizon-expanding traveler’s adventure.
Can wildlife species adjust to changing environmental conditions? How do they cope with rising temperatures? And are they able to pass on their “experience” to their offspring?
For a long time, genetic adaptability of living beings was thought to be based entirely on changes in the building blocks of the genome passed on from one generation to another. Nowadays, however, there is evidence of mechanisms that cause the genome to respond flexibly to environmental factors – this is precisely what the field of epigenetics describes. Epigenetics builds a bridge between the genome and the environment. Just like on a piano keyboard, the genome in each cell of a living being
is identical, whilst epigenetics determines the song that is played.
In this cartoon, Ada tells us how epigenetics composes these songs. We learn more about wildlife, evolution, science, and about us as human beings.
The scientific knowledge in this booklet comes from Dr. Alexandra Weyrich from the Leibniz-Institut for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin, storytelling was made by Olaf Nowacki and the publisher herself drew the comic.

YUKI — this is a label originated by two Japanese artists: Maki Shimizu and Yuko Chikazawa, and is an amalgam of both their first names.
While Maki has been living in Berlin for the last couple of years, Yuko resides in Tokyo. Despite the geographical distance, they continued collaboration on their woodcut project "Portraits of our friends" that they started during their studies in Japan. Within one decade they created over 100 portraits together.
In this current album all portraits are presented in their entirety, partly supplemented by initial sketches down to the finished print. Maki´s narrative of her collaboration with Yuko Chikazawa and how these portraits shaped their mutual artistic path, give a very personal story, encouraging the involvement of our own emotions and outlook.
