Otilie fängt den Bücherdieb

Otilie Catches the Book Thief

One, two, three: here come the rat police! Otilie is a good-natured rat, who loves reading and lives in Mrs Number Nip’s book shop. Otilie has made herself at home in her hammock on one of the bookshelves, where she reads, makes up rhymes, builds artworks with books and keeps a watchful eye on her favourite stories. One day, a dodgy-looking man comes into the shop. Otilie pays close attention and, yes, unbelievable! The man is actually trying to steal books. But Otilie is faster. With the aid of her homemade trip trap, she catches the thief!

For all Otilie fans, here comes the first big adventures about our book-loving rat.
