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.

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
Could anything be more exciting than a child’s first day at school? Hardly. But Berti’s first day surpasses them all. To start with, the whole family wakes up so late that Berti can’t even change out of his pyjamas before setting off for school. Then his daddy drives like a madman, which does not amuse the police, at all. Berti can’t count on his big brother, and a sprint to school turns into a wild chase. Will Berti make it to school on time? And what about his first-day-of-school cone filled with treats and presents?

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.

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.” - Buchkinderblog.de

- An unwilling, guaranteed cliché-free unicorn
