What happens when a new baby arrives? Good ideas for “new brothers and sisters”
Lena thinks her new brother has a great life. Mummy is always carrying him. She can hardly ever pick Lena up anymore and also has less time to read to her and play with her. Luckily, Lena comes up with lots of good ideas: she paints a picture while Mummy is nursing her brother, she and Mummy push the pram together, and every day there’s a Mummy-and-Lena time that’s reserved especially for them.

Maar, Paul (Author) Schmidt, Cordula (Illustrator)

Children’s everyday lives! Funny, exciting and full of surprises! It’s often not so easy to be a big sister! That, at least, is how Christine feels when Hanna is again copying everything she does. And Jacob, whose mother is getting married again, would really prefer not to have a new brother. Paul Maar’s amusing, yet profound stories deal with the commonplace and at the same time extraordinary experiences of children who, though they go to the same school, still all have a story of their own. And that is exactly what’s so much fun: suddenly you discover characters in a story that you have already read about! Eleven interwoven stories taken from school and family life – suitable for teaching purposes. | 11 +

But how’s it going to end for Eddie? Bertie simply has to save him! | 6 +

Weger, Nina (Author) Schöffmann-Davidov, Eva (Illustrator)

“Sometimes, when I was lying in bed at night, I would imagine that Julius was gliding through the depths of the ocean like an enormous whale.“

Do we have the right to make decisions about someone else’s life? And how are we to know what is right or wrong if we can’t ask them? Blake’s older brother Julius is in a coma; the family has to make a decision and is on the verge of breaking apart. So what now? Blake’s friend Martha wants to ask the Pope. Surely he must know what to do in a case like this … They secretly rob their piggy banks, steal a credit card and set out on an adventurous trip to Rome to find an answer and save Blake’s family.

A uniquely sensitive and wonderful story about life.

With this courageous book, Nina Weger creates a reading experience that hovers between tears and laughter, profoundly serious and yet with a fine sense of comedy and an inspiring message: live life to the full and always try to look on the bright side of things.

Berti comes in like a wrecking ball!

Sibling fun somewhere between the Herdmanns and Troublemaker Street: Life really isn’t easy for five-year-old Berti. He has not one, but three big brothers – and all of them are at least twice as old as him! So it’s no wonder they only ever see him as the baby who’s never allowed to join in their games. After all, as superheroes, they are constantly busy saving the world every day. It’s just a pity that their heroic deeds always land them in such a mess that they have to be saved themselves – by Berti, of all people!

- Superheroes are a top topic at the moment and here it’s spiced with plenty of humour and a host of hilarious illustrations, so just right for the young target group
- Ideal for reading aloud: a book brimming with mischief that will have parents and children in stitches

Will Berti make it to school on time? And what about his first-day-of-school cone filled with treats and presents?

Little brothers are the nastiest things in the world, Anna thinks. But big sisters aren’t always what you would expect them to be, if you can believe Olli. Anna is nearly seven and in year one at school. Olli isn’t even four yet and has only just started nursery school. He doesn’t know anything about numbers and letters and things like that. All he knows is how to get on his big sister’s nerves – by secretly eating the chocolate out of the advent calendar, or wanting to join in when she’s dressing up with her friends. Then Mummy is always on his side. It’s quite obvious that Mummy loves Olli better. That’s not how Olli sees it, though. He’s never allowed to be in the room he shares with Anna when she’s playing with her friends, and she never gives him any of her sweets, either. No wonder Olli sometimes has to kick her. Then Mummy always scolds him. It’s quite obvious that Mummy loves Anna better. Sometimes, though, big sisters and little brothers can also be quite useful: like when it gets dark and there are dangerous robbers all over the place … | 4 +

When it comes to sibling pranks, it never rains but it pours

Swapping piggy banks on the sly? Training flees (and letting them escape)? Feeding ponies with straw hats? Klara and her brother are never at a loss for a trick to play. That’s hardly surprising because siblings spend lots of time with each other – it’s like having friends who are always there. You can come up with the most delightful pranks, like tasting the cake mum’s just baked and going back for more for so long that you might as well just finish it off.

The unicorn craze? Totally pathetic! says Kurt.

A pesky bird, a princess who beats up the prince and Kurt, an unwilling unicorn who thinks, sparkly pink stars and rose-scented farts are totally pathetic – it’s enough to make you weep. But what’s the good of complaining? With a little help from Trill the bird and the ninja goldfish, unicorn Kurt will rescue kidnapped Prince Flea in the end, pink fur or none.

“Kurt is one thing above all else: amazingly funny! At last, here we have a different kind of story about unicorns and princesses. That Kurt is anything but your typical unicorn and that he finds everything a unicorn normally represents incredibly annoying, is the theme that runs right through the book and keeps the laughs coming right to the end.” -

- An unwilling, guaranteed cliché-free unicorn
- Ironic, amusing story time fun even grown-ups will love to read
