Die sagenhafte Saubande

Vol. 1 - Kommando Känguru

Cracking Crimes with Pig and Poodles - Commando Kangaroo

Super sleuths! Nina Weger’s crazy band of animal detectives.
Nine-year-old Matheo has a very special gift; he can talk to animals. And he doesn't even like them particularly! Then on a day trip to a safari park, he makes friends with the poodles Toffy and Nero. Before very long, he needs their help to find a kangaroo that has mysteriously gone missing from the park. Together with a cheeky little girl called Polly, the two poodles, tracker pig Max and Dr Black, the crow, Matheo soon picks up the trail.
The first book in the rumbustious and compelling detective series of talking animals, masterfully told at eye level with the children.
