    Fresh new look for this bestselling book & tape featuring the Smarties prizewinner of 1995. It's Christmas, but Irina's family don't have enough money to buy her the present she wants. Then Irina sees the wooden horse in the junk shop window and all she wants is to take it home with her. Irina is sad and lonely and knows that the little horse is lonely too. But what Irina doesn't know is that this dusty little horse with the tattered mane is really an enchanted horse who comes to life and takes Irina on magical journeys.

    Olivia, an American-born model, married Count Ugo Brunamonti, a feckless, soon impoverished aristocrat. After his death, she supported her children by starting a fashion house which has prospered. When she is kidnapped, the crime is reported to Marshal Guarnaccia by her daughter, who may have been the intended victim. Kidnapping is almost a second business for the Sardinians nominally engaged in raising sheep in the Tuscan hills.

    When it comes to motives for crime, the past can never be forgotten. Sara Hirsch is a nervous elderly spinster who still lives in the flat above a long-standing Florentine antiquities shop in which she was raised. Frightened, she calls Marshal Guarnaccia for help, sure that strangers have been in her apartment. The marshal knows she is a lonely old woman but he is preoccupied with an investigation into an Albanian prostitution ring. Before he can respond to her latest alarm, she is found dead.

    Der Frühling kommt und Finchen legt in ihrem Hinterhof einen Minigarten an, in dem sie Petersilie, Löwenmäulchen und Kapuzinerkresse sät. An Ostern erfährt Finchen, daß Ostereier anzumalen viel lustiger ist, als sich mit Schokoladeneiern vollzustopfen, und daß das allerschönste Osterei das Ei ist, über dem die Henne Mavis brütet, bis ein Küken schlüpft.

    Alle haßten die lebende Lulu, und die tote Lulu war erst recht keine sympatische Erscheinung. Niemand wollte mit diesem unmöglichen Fall zu tun zu haben, schon gar nicht Wachtmeister Gurnaccia von der Carabinieri-Station am Palazzo Pitti. Es hatte andere Fälle dieser Art gegeben, und alle waren ungelöst geblieben.

    Der Maresciallo Guarnaccia ist ein ruhiger bedächtiger Mann aus dem Volk und es gefällt ihm ganz und gar nicht, dass er in einem Mord- oder Unfall im Kreise der Reichen und Intellektuellen ermitteln muss. Zu allem Überfluss wurde ihm dabei auch noch Staatsanwalt Fusarri zugeteilt, dessen bekannten Zynismus und Überheblichkeit er fürchtet.
