    Learn to read with the help of magical elves! Eyela is the daughter of the King of Bayala, the land of the elves. Feya is her best friend, and the pair always do everything together. But today they have argued and Feya has stayed behind in the palace gardens, sulking, while Eyela rides out alone across the land of the elves on Dolpo, her horse. No one has the time to accompany her, not even her twin sisters, Sera and Sura. Only Zarou, the flying squirrel flies along with her for part of the way. Then suddenly they catch sight of a group of elves performing tricks on their horses’ backs. They are rehearsing for the grand summer tournament! “Look, there’s Princess Eyela!” one elf shouts, as he somersaults into the air. Eyela is well known in the land of the elves and she’s an excellent rider. They let her rehearse with them. Then up comes Feya on her horse. She did follow Eyela, after all. And with her best friend, Eyela’s horseback tricks work even better! | 7 +

      Learn to read with the help of magical elves! Eyela and Feya discover a secret chamber inside the elfin palace, and there they happen upon a very old book of spells. The two elves are curious, of course, to see whether the spells work and actually try a few of them out. At first, all goes very well!
      The pair let it rain roses and bathe the secret chamber in the most beautiful colours. But then the spells become more difficult – and the two young elves are normally only allowed to do magic under supervision. But Eyela is over-confident and casts a spell on some of the old, wise elves. Unfortunately for here, though, they know the spells in the book and are both astonished and angry. No one is permitted to enter the secret chamber and the book of spells was thought to have disappeared. Have Eyela and Feya uncovered an old secret belonging to the sun elves?

COOLMAN, on the other hand, is bowled over by the bubbly French girl and willing to give up anything for Niki – even Kay! And Kay has problems enough as it is because his relationship with Lena has just reached an all-time low once again. So what Kay needs now is a good plan; a good plan and a brown-and-white rabbit. No wonder all kinds of chaos are in store yet again for the two friends.

Luckily he’s got COOLMAN to help him out and advise him – which is sometimes good, but usually not. But then COOLMAN suddenly disappears. Kai without COOLMAN? An impossible situation! And very soon it becomes clear that neither of the two can manage without the other. Never change a winning team! This book from the popular comic book series by Rüdiger Bertram and Heribert Schulmeyer portrays the tumultuous daily life of a very nearly ordinary twelve-year-old and is equally chaotic, incredibly funny, sometimes embarrassing and always exciting. With several comic strips.

Instead of helping Kay, COOLMAN only makes things far worse with his clever-clogs suggestions and because of him Kai ends up wrecking Charles’ Rolls-Royce and Stonehenge ends up in ruins. But COOLMAN had nothing to do with the theft from the museum. Now he and Kai must bring their detective skills into play to find out who did.

                                    Kay is twelve years old, he’s in year six at school and he’s basically a perfectly ordinary boy. Basically – if it weren’t for COOLMAN, who is always there at his side. COOLMAN is a bit of a big mouth and always ready with a wisecrack; and there isn’t anything he hasn’t already seen or done. He’s the ultimate superhero – in his words. On top of this, COOLMAN is convinced he’s the best thing that ever happened to Kay and it doesn’t bother him at all if Kay occasionally doesn’t see it.
                                    The fact that Kay is the only person who can see COOLMAN doesn’t make matters easier – especially when his sometimes rather dubious advice gets Kay into embarrassing situations. Not that this is COOLMAN’s fault! Kay finds himself following his invisible companion’s suggestions again and again – which can be disastrous, especially where girls are concerned. And when a whole weekend without parents is in the offing, his elder sister is planning to throw a huge party, his school is organising a fancy dress party, he is supposed to be going as an aubergine – and nothing is really turning out as he planned, there’s only one thing for it: for Kay to emigrate. Or to face the situation like a hero!

                                                    Bob and Tim had always thought that they had finally put paid to the machinations of the megalomaniac Baron von Funeral on their last mission. But already there’s bad news awaiting them at the S.W.A.P. headquarters: a zombie disaster is threatening the world! All over the globe, the undead are appearing and it’s only a matter of time before the entire human race has been wiped out. Luckily, however, S.W.A.P. has two crisis-tested top agents in Bob and Tim, who let absolutely nothing deter them!
