Rolf, der Bücherheld
Rolf, The Book Hero
Luisa Jung & Heidi Viherjuuri
Rolf’s life as a sexton is rather monotonous. People used to come from far away to see his church, but nowadays he spends most of his time only in the company of church mice. Suddenly as the town is flooded his church must be used as an emergency library. Rolf finally gets the chance he has been waiting for. Now he can show everyone that he can be a true hero!
