Inhalt

Little King Macius
Just before his ninth birthday, Prince Macius faces the most difficult moment of his young life: his father, the King, has died and Macius must ascend the throne. No sooner has he accepted his duty than the evil General begins intriguing against him. The General wants to rule the country and, more importantly, start a war. His first evil deed is to kidnap Macius′ friend and teacher Erasmus. Once Macius and his friends have saved Erasmus, Macius decides to found a children′s parliament and have the country ruled by the children.


But the plan backfires and chaos spreads through the country – fanned by the evil General. After a war with a neighboring prince can just barely be averted, Macius realizes that in the future, the children should only make decisions that regard them. Like opening a zoo, for which they travel to Tungupungu Island. The General, of course, has not told them about the cannibals that live there... But once again, the children outsmart the evil General and, after many adventures with false cannibals, clever animals and cowardly pirates, Macius and his friends make it back home safe and sound. The General must concede defeat, and Macius realizes how important it is to have friends you can rely on!
