Betty and the boys! Blog posts from Betty’s chaotic daily life

There’s always something happening in Betty’s life! She falls in love with Ivo, but while the pair are still cautiously pussy-footing around and constantly misunderstanding each other, this cool, Argentinean exchange student suddenly appears on the scene. And who was it that sent the anonymous love letter? Betty is kept guessing and reports everything that happens to her in the definitive Betty blog – brief, to the point, cheeky and absolutely frank! Author Juma Kliebenstein writes about the ever-popular subject of love and growing up – here in a totally up-to-date style and using social networking and, appropriately, an exceptionally cool layout!

Blunderblog! Betty’s best – new from Juma Kliebenstein

Betty is 14 and since her last birthday has at last been the proud owner of a laptop! What better reason to share the details of her chaotic life with others? So she starts to write a blog. This deals not only with the size of her boobs (more or less zilch…) and the question of how to get to know boys (success: also more or less zilch), but also about mothers who serve cocoa at birthday parties, bits of toilet paper hanging out of pants and babysitter jobs that go hopelessly wrong. Betty seems to find putting her foot in it wherever she possibly can utterly irresistible!
Funny, frank, young girls will recognize and laugh out loud at the situations told in authentic social network style in this novel.

Christmas is nearly here and Anna is quite convinced that she will be given a dog. But what’s that by the Christmas tree? A bike. Anna can hardly believe it. Okay, it is a lovely bike and it does have five gears. But it simply isn’t a dog. A dog would have been pleased to be Anna’s present.

Perhaps it would like that.” And the bike really does. Well it certainly hums as if it were happy and Anna is happy, too. And anyway, it’ll be her birthday again soon, won’t it? Then she’s sure to get a dog … | 7 +

The little owl from the bestselling board picture book “Ow!” Said the Owl now also in picture-book format for children of 3 and over!

»To the beautiful stars in the sky is where I want to fly.« The little owl loves the way the stars twinkle high up in the night sky. But how can she possibly reach them? The answer is clear - it’s time she learnt to fly! She practises and practises and in the end, just as she’s flying as high as she possibly can, Daddy holds her back and Mummy takes the little owl in her arms and explains that she can never fly far enough to reach the stars. But then the little owl notices a shooting star coming quite near to her – and, of course, it brings her lots of luck.

With a wonderful message of encouragement and a touching happy end. | 3 +
