DR. JOY IN THE LAND OF FANTASY
Nena’s Magic Colouring Book

This book was envisaged as a working excersize book related to Nena’s Fantasy Land.  This is a creative colouring book that continues in the spirit of Nena’s Fantasy Land to invite the children to take part in the challanges of fantasiszing offering them also the possibility to draw and write in it instantaniously.  (Apart from all the already well known heroes from Nena’s Fantasy Land there also appear a number of new characters, such as, for instance, Dr Joy, to whose exploits a seperate book will be devoted).

A Magic House am I
in night and day
half the world
I travail

all the windows in my hat
May I earnestly bet
an apartment you will surely get.
