Amazing Wiplala, The

He is only 10 cm tall but he is not a gnome, rather a Wiplala. A Wiplala can tinkle - in his language that is 'magic' - but he keeps forgetting how tinkling works exactly and how things can often go wrong. His most disastrous tinkling act is when he transforms the man-sized Blom, his daughter Nella Della and son Johannes into little people, also 10 cm tall. And so begins an exciting adventure. Can they ever be made ‘normal' again?
