It is a lovely little house in a quiet side road, and it would be lovely to be able to live there. On this, all three Zwoch girls, Tete, Pups and Wuzi, agree. Although the house is actually quite dilapidated, and it would cost a fortune to restore it, they’re convinced stingy old Great-aunt Knitzdeibl must have hidden her money somewhere, in savings accounts, stocks and shares and that kind of stuff! At least Jacob Pamperl, who lives next door to the Zwochs and is never called anything but "the boy next door" by any of them, is sure of this and sets out on a treasure hunt. | 10 +

                                                                King Basilius, the King of Pamphylia, loves his son Florestan more than anything in the world. The King forbids Florestan to venture outside the castle gardens because he fears that Bam-Bam the giant might steal off with his beloved son. Florestan makes friends with a boy called Toto, who lives on the other side of the garden wall, who teaches him to play beautiful tunes on his pipe.
                                                                It turns out that the king was right to fear for his son’s safety because, one fine day, vultures come and carry Prince Florestan off to Bam-Bam the giant. The giant plans to put Florestan to work for him, but when the prince sets his pipe to his lips, he plays such sweet music that the giant is spellbound. Very soon, along come Toto and Veribunda, the fairy, who rescue him from the giant’s clutches.
