“It’s a nuisance.” - All dressed up for a good time with his friends in a wonderful hotel, just after arriving with their freshly polished side car… Teddy finds his hat got snaffled by some annoying thief. - But where can it be? - And who is the suspect? …It must have been just after tea time, this is for sure.

“Teddy” and his friends start their investigation. - They comb through all detective books in the library to find out how to do a really good investigation. - They look everywhere, even with their magnifying glass. - They write down every clue they get, they even climb up on the roof… “Aaah!” Teddy shouts. - “Look, over there! The nasty magpie is the thief! She’s got my hat in her beak! - Give me back my hat, nasty magpie!” “But…but look how beautiful she is, she’s the most beautiful magpie I have ever seen!” says Teddy’s friend. “I am so sorry,” croaked the magpie, “I just really fell in love with your hat, Teddy…it’s soooo wonderful, so golden, so glittery - I just could not resist!” “Grrhmmm….” mumbled Teddy “grrrhmmm…okay, magpie - excuse accepted. - But now give it back to me. - You can sit on my shoulder and look at it all day, if you want. - But the hat stays on my head. - It’s my favorite hat, you know!”

“Come, little magpie,” says Teddy’s friend who is starting to get really hungry - “we are all starving after a hard day of detective work. - We are happy we finally found you and Teddy’s hat. - Teddy, come on, put your hat on your little head and let’s all have dinner together. - I saw some delicious strawberries on the table!” “…aaammmhhh! Strawberries!!” whispers the little magpie, dropping the hat into Teddy’s hands, “who needs a hat when you can have strawberries!”

Lazy Summer 2019 - ILVIE & BEN photograph and film 'La Dolce Vita' with a band of adorable rascals in dream locations in Morocco

Summer break is here, hooray!! It's finally time to lie at the pool, ride bikes, play games, swim in the clear water - and eat as much ice cream as will fit in our bellies. ILVIE & BEN love summer break…. and in order to get in the right mood for that long, fantastic break, they went ahead to Morocco in the spring with ten chosen kids. Because, as everyone knows, Morocco gets the summer waaay earlier. Oh, what a sweet, glorious life!

ILVIE & BEN photographs 'THE COUP' in Geneva; we have the charming editorial including the making-of film for you on GoSee

“Hey kids, want to go on a new adventure with us? Want to play really mean robbers today, just like the three safecrackers, but even meaner... How about hijacking a boat, sailing across Lake Geneva in a snowstorm – and stealing the most beautiful and expensive painting in the museum!”

The kids were fascinated – of course. The fact that it was waaay too warm for all the thick jackets and coats didn't bother them at all. Together with ILVIE & BEN, they rooted for the funny man with the snowmaker and the almost just as funny guy with the fog machine to cool things down a bit.

And the heist went down well, too... that is, until the robbers, who really weren't that mean after all, were caught by the friendly museum guards. The kids decided without further ado to leave the painting in the museum for all to admire... and instead, to party with their fellow burglars on the boat.
