Ludwig, Sabine (Author) Kreitz, Isabel (Illustrator)

Magical multiplication is all that can help here! Who is ever going to believe 12-year-old Felix that he has shrunk the maths teacher all the kids hate and that she is now just 15.3 centimetres tall? He himself has no idea how it happened! But now he has a problem on his hands, or rather in his jacket pocket - because that’s where the maths teacher is now and still complaining bitterly. How on earth is Felix going to get her back to her normal size again? Felix grows bolder and bolder as he tries to find out why the teacher has been transformed and in the process becomes less willing to let himself be bossed about. Most importantly, though, he happens on an incredible story that is supposed to have taken place 100 years ago... Full of suspense and funny situations – a book schoolkids can really identify with!
