Media prize LEOPOLD for ”Knight Rusty and the Magic Book”

Yet again, Ritter Rost was awarded this important German award for good children’s music. From the citation: “Who must we be dealing with when we talk about cereal with thumbtacks and paper clips, a forest of mythical creatures, King Leadfoot or a Talking Hat? That’s right – we are in the Iron Castle of the Knight Rusty with his caste maiden Bo and house dragon Koke, who have already faced countless crazy adventures together. This time, Koke takes advantage of the absence of the two „grownups” – Bo redeems her birthday voucher for a dance evening with Rusty – to try out spells and magic recipes from an exciting book he discovered on the library shelf of the castle. However, much like Goethe’s „The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,“ the disobedient dragon gets himself into quite a bit of trouble. (…) With a tongue-in-cheek look at typical everyday situations, couple and family conflicts, with inexhaustible wordplay and the matching catchy yet musically clever songs, the production is once again a guarantor for great family entertainment.“

Exhibition at Tiroler Landesmuseum, Innsbruck

A knight has to be strong, bold and noble. Jörg Hilbert found that too much of a stereotype and invented Rusty Knight instead – weak, timid and rusty. In the exhibition, the clumsy knight, whose adventures can now be followed in more than 30 children’s books, radio plays and films, stumbles through the Museum im Zeughaus. Castle Maiden Bo, King Leadfoot, Pretentious Prince, Wicked Witch and many other characters are accompanying their friend or rival.

The little dinosaur from Hilbert’s first, but unpublished children’s book, will also be making a first appearance. The dinosaur has close ties with Innsbruck, as the originals were kept for decades by Hilbert’s great role model and patron, the late Paul Flora, be-fore being made available for the exhibition by his family. Later the little dinosaur developed into Fire Dragon Koke, who is now getting into mischief with Rusty Knight.

Adults and children aged four and above are invited to the mu-seum for the exhibition. It remains to be seen who will enjoy the exhibits more.

„Altes Zeughaus“, Innsbruck, 27.11.20 – 07.03.21

Knight Rusty and the Magical Book (Volume 19)

A novel magical adventure on the trail of Goethe’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice with Knight Rusty, the castle maiden Bo and the fire dragon Koke for children from the age of 4! Including many new songs to sing along, reenact and enjoy. It’s no use moaning – today, Knight Rusty has to go dancing with castle maiden Bo. At least, that’s what the voucher he once gifted her says. And Koke? He is supposed to stay in the castle and go to bed early. “There’s no way”, the little dragon thinks. Earlier, he discovered the Secret Book of Magical Moments in the library. Nothing but secret spells are written in there. Of course, Koke can’t resist… and so the magic takes its course.
Imagination, humor and a lot of music are the secret recipe for the Knight Rusty musicals. On the CD which is included in the book you can find many songs to sing along, reenact or simply listen to.
