Families are like a rainbow – they come in every colour.
How come Oscar has two mummies, Tilly wonders. Her big sister, Frieda, explains that Oscar’s mummies badly wanted a baby but couldn’t make their wish come true. Then they met Tilly’s and Frieda’s parents and Frieda’s and Tilly’s daddy donated some sperm to Oscar’s mummies. That’s how Oscar came to be born and a great wish turned into an even greater miracle.

Two Mummies for Oscar deals with the topical subject of “rainbow families”: vivid, descriptive and written in child-appropriate language, the book makes it easy for parents and teachers to talk about diversity to children of three and over.

Martin, Peer (Author) Büro Süd GmbH (Illustrator)

An eye-opening book: unsettling, poetic, socially enlightening.
Socially enlightening young adult literature of the very highest standard
Nuri is from Syria and lives at a home for asylum seekers. Calvin lives just a few doors down the road and is a member of a right-wing teenage gang. When the two meet each other, Nuri tells him about her native village on the edge of the desert and how beautiful it was, but that then the wings of evil swooped down and cast their shadow across the land. The more Calvin learns about the girl with the dark eyes, the more he falls in love with her. Calvin decides to leave his gang – but getting away from his old friends isn’t so easy.
A moving love story amid social conflict, full of poetry and beauty. A painfully frank portrait of society with a Romeo and Juliet story all its own.

SUMMER UNDER BLAC WINGS won the German Youth Literature Award in 2016!

“With deep insight Peer Martin depicts the ground on which hatred grows, and in precise detail he describes the mechanisms at work within the group. This makes the story credible. But Martin’s novel is much more than an educational work. It is gripping and moving, and it takes its life from characters one does not want to be parted from.” Neue Zürcher Zeitung

“A multilayered book that makes the reader sit up and think; an incitement to resist every form of Neo-Nazism.” (Büchermagazin 04/2015) | 16 +

First, You Betray Your Conscience. Then You Betray Your Family

A teen fiction first: young people in the GDR being turned into unofficial collaborators by the Stasi

When his grandmother has to move to a care home, Sebastian has to move in with his father, who left their family when Sebastian was just a baby. He feels no connection with this man who served a life sentence and barely addresses a word to him. It is, however, better than going back to that dreadful children’s home which Social Services initially placed him in – and where he came to care secretly about Katja, who ran away. One day, though, a man appears at Sebastian’s school and forces him to agree to spy on his teachers and schoolmates. He turns him into an unofficial Stasi collaborator, and persuades him to spy on his own father. | 14 +
