Emmi und Einschwein

Schulstart mit Eierkuchen

Emmi and Unipig - First Day at School with Pancakes

A Detective with a Heart and a Horn: Clearly a Case for Emmi and Unipig!

A thief is wreaking havoc in Elftown. He’s stealing the expensive street lamps that normally allow the human population’s flying creatures of fable see where they’re going at night. Daddy’s dragon even had an accident in the sudden darkness. Mummy Brix is supposed to be solving the case – she is a police officer, after all. But then Unipig gobbles up a small cake that’s the only piece of evidence! Emmi is furious. But perhaps the pair can still help Mummy to find the thief.

The delighted readership of this enchanting series: charmingly imperfect. Unipig speaks from children’s hearts!

Wonderfully written, with light-hearted humour, but also depth.
