Im Tal der Buchstabennudeln

In The Valley Of Letter Pasta

The Mystery of the Rubber Crocodiles
Emma, Sarah, Nucki, Fitze and Torben are spending their holidays at the Kids’ Club in the mountains. From their very first day, they can sense that something is not quite right there. Their accommodation is shabby, the five friends are the only children staying at the club and the supervisors, all dressed in kimonos, look like peas from a pod. Where do the rubber crocodiles that wash up on the lake shore come from? Why does each of the children always have just one particular letter in his or her bowl of noodle soup? But things really turn weird when the kimono women disappear and the children find themselves all alone…
Holiday club mysteries – exciting and amusing all at the same time! The second children’s book by popular author Gernot Gricksch.
