                  “Family is the most important thing in life, blood is thicker than pleasure.” That’s what Mariechen’s gran always says. Let’s just hope she’s right. The weekend Konrad from Mariechen’s class has invited everyone to a summer party is the very one the Haselgruber’s family reunion takes place in South Tyrol. Naturally, Mariechen, thirteen years young, needs to show a bit of family interest once a year and has to go, but the outing luckily ends unexpected and prematurely. The party seems to be a sure thing, now, if only two boys hadn’t shown an interest in Mariechen. While she is still trying to sort out her confused emotional life, she is unsettled by strange threatening letters addressed to her grandmother concerning the invention of a bakery production line and the repayment of large sums of money. No wonder Gran’s crazy business can no longer be kept a secret. After all, how they get out of this mess is a matter that concerns everyone in the Haselgruber family. Will Mariechen and her family be forced to leave their home, the beloved old Villa Henriette? If it weren’t for her great-uncle, who is actually a bit “plem-plem” – who knows. | 12 +

Apart from him, there is just one grandmother, one great-aunt, two aunts, a mother and two big sisters. Not a single man far and wide, not even on high days and holidays. But this only becomes really clear to Olfi during maths one day, when he reads in a psycho magazine that children who have been brought up by men have a much higher IQ than children who have grown up surrounded only by females ... Understandably, Olfi feels he has been cheated of his rightful intelligence and falls into crisis. Christine Nöstlinger has him tell his own story, in a carefree, cheeky and very funny style, of experiencing and overcoming his crisis – and at the same time of finding the first great love of his life and managing to lose a not-so-great one. | 12 +

And so that she can do everything when the baby comes, Franz is always having to practise “baby” with her. He has to put on a pair of tights and a bobble hat, kick when she tells him to and close his eyes when Gabi whispers “Little baby, go to sleep now!” He only ran away once.

But not stamps, they’re too small and boring for him. Rudi collects labels: off apple-juice bottles, beer bottles, wine bottles, lemonade bottles, ketchup bottles, liqueur bottles, vinegar bottles, oil bottles – there isn’t a label Rudi won’t collect. As soon as they find out about his hobby, the neighbours simply leave their empty bottles outside the door. Usually there are only a few “good” labels among them. When Rudi has removed them, he has to take the mountain of bottles to the bottle bank. No wonder collecting is gradually getting on his nerves, but he doesn’t dare to stop because his dad would surely be disappointed in him. Luckily, his grandmother has an idea. | 6 +

                                                  Nick is nine years old and there’s one thing in the world he really wants – he would love to have a dog; a real, live dog. Unfortunately, everyone in Nick’s family is so crazy that he can’t talk to them about anything as ordinary as a dog – everyone, that is, but his grandad, John Lasar. Apart from Nick, he is the only sensible person in the family. And he is going to persuade Nick’s mother to let Nick have a dog at last. That’s what Nick hopes, at least and so he plans to talk to his grandad about it at the grand anniversary party to be held for his grandad’s chocolate factory.
                                                  But then things don’t turn out anything like Nick had imagined because Grandad John, Nick’s only ally of all people, turns crazy from one day to the next, and starts believing he is God.
                                                  This causes great excitement, of course, and for once in their lives, all the other members of the family agree that Grandad John absolutely must be brought to his senses. The only trouble is that no amount of yoga, music, argument, pleading or name calling has the slightest effect. Grandad John continues to declare that he is God. Then Nick remembers what his sister’s teacher once said about his sister’s India mania: namely that everyone should accept it and, even better, play along with it. So all the members of his family build a throne and set Grandad John upon it and one by one they come before him to ask him to grant their wishes.
                                                  Not even Nick would ever have guessed just how crazy his family’s wishes could be and above all what peculiar consequences the whole thing would have …

One day, the family discovers Gran Cordula, Mummy’s mother from the old peoples’ home, suddenly standing on the doorstep. She turns the family’s idyll into chaos and declares that there's a treasure buried in the garden. And while Henrik gaily sets about digging, initially earning mocking smiles from his mummy, daddy and sister, hole by hole, they all start secretly digging themselves. At some point, even the city authorities and neighbours turn up at the fence with their spades. There really must be something worth finding here. A warm-hearted and slightly zany family story by Salah Naoura.

                                                    « With subtle humour, acute dialogues and a grandmother who turns everything upside down, Salah Naoura skilfully delivers a family's normality into the realms of the absurd. As the family members greedily dig for gold, their standards, certainties and relationships shift and need to be redefined. Naoura has a talent for presenting difficult topics in light-hearted guise. » Excerpt from the jury’s assessment for the book’s nomination for the 2014 German-French Children’s Literature Award.

He also knows that Ogglies never have tummy ache even though they gobble up the most peculiar things – for example, rice-nail casserole with smelly socks au gratin. There must be a reason for this, the professor thinks and, with the aid of the Ogglies, sets to work developing an efficacious remedy for tummy ache with the aim of winning first prize at the Inventors’ Congress. The trouble is that he hadn’t reckoned with the Ogglies’ stubbornness. And then Professor Fizzywine’s medicine turns out to have a completely different effect from the one he intended!
                                                        Great fun for all Oggly fans: the first Oggly novel for children with lots of colour illustrations by the author.

There’s no reason why Jonah shouldn’t be perfectly happy living on his own with his father, is there? But his Daddy thinks their home needs a woman’s touch so he joins a dating programme and takes Jonah with him to an Amor meeting instead of football. The women he meets there are all really stupid, Jonah thinks. Why doesn’t he just take Lotti from next door? But Daddy won’t listen to a word and drags Jonah off to a speed-dating session. And who should be there, too, but Lotti! She appears to be getting along very well with one of the men there and, for some reason, Daddy doesn’t look too pleased about that…

Everyone laughed at him in school, Lucas wouldn’t play with him and then a boy from the third year stole his woolly hat on the way home. With so much bad luck, how could Jack possibly not be in a bad mood. And what can you do when the whole day has been so rotten? Luckily, Jack’s mummy comes up with a super idea. In this book for beginning readers, author Paul Maar yet again shows his great ability to empathise with children and offers affectionate suggestions for dealing with such difficult emotions as embarrassment, disappointment and anger.
