Weger, Nina (Author) Dulleck, Nina (Illustrator)

A boarding school for power girls! The pupils of the Matilda Imperatrix boarding school are all very special: Flo rides like the devil and she’s a fantastic sword fighter, too. Pina, on the other hand, is more the quiet type, and she can read animal tracks and is good at archery. When the extremely well-behaved Blanca joins them at boarding school, the two friends are a bit sceptical to begin with. But then Blanca turns out to be a pirate, and with her help, they succeed in freeing Flo’s little sister from the grasp of unscrupulous kidnappers.

Highly entertaining: funny, fast-paced, exciting!

Alarm at the Matilda Imperatrix! Who destroyed the boarding school’s bee hives? Pina, Flo and Blanca immediately pick up the trail and discover that it was none other than a little bear that’s wandering the woods. Pina, in particular, feels for the baby bear because she knows exactly what it’s like to be all alone and without parents.
But a small bear is no cuddly toy, of course and before long panic breaks out among the girls. A bear, so close to their school, isn’t that terribly dangerous? Before long, the first farmers in the village are preparing to hunt the bear down – and Pina, Flo and Blanca realise that they need to act fast if they want to save the little bear!

Exciting, clever and bear-friendly: this club is there for everyone!

Snowed in at Christmas. A case for Nina Weger’s popular Heroines Club!

The Matilda Imperatrix boarding school is in Christmas mood! It’s swathed in a glittering blanket of snow, and the schoolgirls simply can’t wait for the holidays to begin. Every day, the little school bus drives down into the valley so that the Matildas can travel from there to their homes all around the planet. But then the snow just keeps on falling, leaving the boarding school cut off from the outside world – and one of the buses doesn’t even make it as far as the village! A daring rescue begins – and whether or not our three heroines will be able to spend Christmas Eve at home with their families remains to be seen.
