Project Baerlie and Red-Nosed




Baerlie and Red-Nosed

The entire project is about respect and friendship - whether the people involved are tall, short, fat, thin, gray-haired or green-spotted.
The two authors firmly believe that you can achieve more by moving forward in a positive way than by pointing fingers. And, that one is more likely to achieve desired states if one already visualizes them as normal states.
The second volume is about the value or non-value of fear and how to cope with it. Vividly shown by water flying and parachuting. Both are activities that cause most people, let's put it politely, at least respect at first, if not a sinking feeling in the stomach.
"Fear," the pilot said with a smile, "is a very useless emotion. 
It paralyzes and limits your abilities enormously. But respect for the forces of nature (and physics) is good and necessary."


The Corona Book

Spring 2020 was the time when the world as we knew it went off its hinges. During these weeks and months, which were very difficult for many, people all over the world used all their abilities to help others: Doctors, nurses, but also musicians who performed their skills on their balconies. For everyone, as a pep talk, as a distraction from the hardships caused by the Corona crisis.
From the same thought (and for lack of singing skills of the two authors) this book was born. 
May it strengthen the view on diversity, on all our skills and achievements and how important each individual is, especially in difficult times.

Baerlie and Red-Nosed is lovingly illustrated by Michael Stefer and wittily texted by Helga Kleisny: An airplane captain and an aviation journalist who, in Corona times, combine in one book the charm of Janosch drawings, the illustrious world of Alice in Wonderland and the life wisdom of the Little Prince.

The testimonial can be seen on the  Youtube channel for Baerlie and Red-Nosed  with an enchanting video.

As the References, show, the project arouses many positive emotions in those who have seen at least one book. The reactions lead to amazing creativity of the readers.

Baerlie and Red-Nosed Take Off, Volume 2


The second volume is even more about flying, more precisely, about water flying. Well, cats and parachutes are also in it, of course. Pure adventure. :-) In addition, the two learn that fear never helps and how to eat healthy. All with humor and lightness, as with everything in this project.

A making-of film is planned, which will give a glimpse behind the scenes of the Baerlie Project.

"And that flies?" Red-nosed still cautiously says.
"On the water it first rides like a boat, then we water ski and as soon as we are fast enough it takes off and flies like an airplane," says the pilot with a smile.
"You will see it in a moment." 

Now skydiving?
The Red-nosed winces and sighs.
"Are you worried?" the pilot asks empathetically.
"Well, yes," the Red-nosed replies cautiously, "I have ... a little ... Jitters about jumping out of a perfectly good airplane."
"Fear," says the pilot with a smile, "is a very useless emotion.
It paralyzes and limits your abilities tremendously.
Respect for the forces of nature (and physics) is good and necessary. That is why I will show you exactly what you have to do and when."

Cats in the Book

As for the (often unexpected) cats in the books: We humans exist in a cat universe and, that we are allowed to live in houses or otherwise together with them, is to be seen as a friendly gesture of the cat population...
