“Isa and Max walk the path that leads them over the green hill. The sun is shining and the children are happy. Surely their journey so far has been very exciting and surprising. Expectantly, they walk into the adventure. When they get halfway up the hill, it gets a little hazy. Isa looks toward the top of the hill, which is already shrouded in a veil fog. ‘Come Max, let’s keep walking,’ she urged her brother. They continued uphill at a marching pace. Max gets hot. When he slows down the pace, Isa says irritably, “Now hurry up, you can see it’s getting foggy. Soon we won’t see a hand in front of our eyes.’ Max grumbles a bit but nevertheless quickens his stride. Gradually, the fog became denser and expanded across the valley. Max walks a little closer to his sister. The path is almost impossible to see and eventually Isa too has to slow the pace. She grabs Max’s hand so she won’t lose him in the fog.
Slowly they walk on side by side. Isa feels a little uneasy. Then they hear rustling just behind them. Max turns around, but sees nothing. The fog completely enveloped the children. The path right in front of their feet is barely discernible, and agonizingly slowly the children move forward. Fragments of mysterious whispers reach their ears. Isa stiffens Max’s grip. Max’s imagination runs wild when he considers what scary monsters might appear out of the fog. Immediately the fog condensed around him and a second path became visible. Out of the mist, he sees a three-headed monster crossing the path toward them. The right head spits fire and the left head vomits green slime. The middle head holds its mouth wide open, ready to eat the children in one bite. Anxiety sweat appears on Max’s forehead.
Isa, meanwhile, struggles with her own fears. She has always been afraid of crawling insects crawling up the inside of her pant leg. Her mind’s eye thinks of giant ants, ticks, scorpions and tarantulas. In no time, a third toad appears. This path is truly crawling with vermin. Isa screams and begins to jump. What should they do now? The original path can no longer be seen and there is a choice between a three-headed, all-consuming monster or pants full of ants and tarantulas. ‘If only Professor Lophi were here,’ Isa groans. ‘If only Aunt Mina were with us,’ Max says.”
What people are saying about Isa and Max.
"A former teacher was deeply moved and said, more people should read this," he said.
"My grandson thinks it's a fantastic book. He has already read it three times."
"Can recommend it to everyone, to read for yourself or buy for the children or grandchildren, a great book which makes things clear in a super beautiful way, what is actually really there on earth, in the earth and in the cosmos. It will be a recognition for many, but also for many so new, they have to get used to the fact that it might indeed be like this."
"My son found the book very exciting, and he has miraculously memorized a lot of it. Every now and then he spontaneously says something that makes me be like 'huh, how could he possibly know that!' Oh yes ... he has read Isa and Max!"
