        Adventure in Pyjamas! Paul really used to think going to bed was stupid, a pure waste of time! If he stayed up, he could get on with all kinds of things, like finishing his model pirate ship, for example. But then, one evening, he hears a tap, tap, tapping at his window. Outside he sees a rocket in the air. From then on, Carly Comet, the space pilot, takes Paul with him on his nightly outings to strange galaxies, and what Paul experiences there surpasses everything he has ever known before at nursery school or even in his Granddad’s workshop. Going to bed has been a lot less stupid since then! Even when Carly’s rocket has to go into the garage for a service, Paul goes along with him, of course, with his cuddly rat, Conrad, stuffed into the top of his pyjama pants. Suddenly, they hear an almighty bang and there, in front of them, they see a small dragon. He takes our friends all the way across space to the land of dragons and then back again, to Paul’s cosy room.

                            Trenk is in a pickle! If only he had brought some genuine dragon’s teeth back to prove the beast was dead – of course, he didn’t want anyone to know that the dragon in question was actually a friendly mother dragon and that Trenk’s dragon-slaying evidence was just the young dragons’ milk teeth! But now Trenk has been found out and knights from all over are wanting to hunt down the dangerous dragon. Trenk and Thekla soon set out to warn the mother dragon. But then Trenk is lured into a cunning trap by evil Sir Werthold…

But isn’t it terribly unfair that all peasants belong to their knight and not even a tiny little bit to themselves? Peasant boy Trenk certainly thinks so. He wants to have a better life than his father who is yet again up for another beating at the castle. And so Trenk sets out for the city with his piglet on a tether to find his fortune. But finding his fortune turns out not to be as simple as Trenk expected – it’s a good thing he keeps on making friends along the way who are happy to help him. And who would have thought that the little knight Trenk of Thousanddub would end up taking on the dangerous dragon? A book the whole family will love – to read aloud or to yourself. In large, read-aloud format, an elaborate edition with marker ribbons and cloth cover – and over 200 colour pictures by Barbara Scholz!

What’s the betting that his story will soon be a bestselling picture book anyway? What does a fearsome little dragon do when he can’t quite get his fearsomeness right? Simple, he get’s mummy dragon to bring him a human child – to practise on, so to speak. You see, human children are said to be very easy to frighten. They only have to catch sight of a dragon and already they’re trembling and screaming. The little dragon would like that. But when mummy dragon finally comes home with a human child, things are very different. At least, the child certainly doesn’t seem to be frightened – on the contrary. | 3 +
