RalfTube 1. Vom Lauch zur Legende

RalfTube - From Loser to Legend

Watch out, YouTubers: here comes Ralf!

13-year-old Ralf dreams of becoming a famous YouTuber, and is desperate to impress Mia, the prettiest girl in the school, with his own videos. Oh, and he wouldn’t mind becoming rich and famous, either - or finally settling the argument with his arch-enemy Julian as to who’s the coolest of them all.

But what makes for a smash hit YouTube channel? Ralf - a creative newbie - makes his tentative entry into the World Wide Web, which is riddled with far more pitfalls than he could ever have imagined.

Silas Matthes’ “RalfTube” is a story of friendship, courage and dreaming big. Packed with boy-friendly comic-style illustrations, it’s designed to get them reading.

Your own YouTube channel: the dream comes true!
Modern, feisty and funny, this comic-style book is perfect for reluctant readers, too
