The delightfully loveable Patchwork Family – the new children’s book by bestselling author Stefanie Taschinski

Emma and her family are the new people at number 11! But it would be so much more interesting if all the neighbours made up a great big family together – like a patchwork rug. No sooner said, than done! Old Mrs Becker becomes simply Granny Becker, and for all the other children in the house, Emma’s dad becomes their dad, too. There’s just one neighbour who doesn’t want to be part of the patchwork family: the mysterious earl who lives on the ground floor! But how crazy would it be if the combined efforts of the patchwork family didn’t get to the bottom of their invisible neighbour’s secret?

A charming combination of children’s daily life and a heart-warming family story with an element of feel-good suspense | 8 +

                  It’s Christmas. The owl gets some wonderful presents from Mummy and Daddy, Granny and Granddad. The owl is blissful, laughing happily, when it suddenly realises – oh no! – it didn’t think of presents itself! Luckily, it comes up with the very best present to give to the others, after all: “A kiss for everyone! There couldn’t be a better gift!” Each page produces a different sound. Little Owl can be heard speaking, unwrapping presents and, at the end of the story, even singing a Christmas carol.

                  Little Owl Celebrates Christmas can now be heard with a sweet little owl voice.

                    The little fox tries to find out where the sound he just heard is coming from. First he meets a cow, who says “Moo!”. The sound didn’t come from her. Nor were the pig’s grunts, the cockerel’s cockadoodledoo or the owl’s hoots what he heard. And then the little fox discovers that his mummy made the sound because she was so happy to have her little darling back with her again.

                    What Did The Little Fox Hear? is now available with real sounds – six different animal sounds to be exact, for an experience with all the senses.

Christmas is nearly here and Anna is quite convinced that she will be given a dog. But what’s that by the Christmas tree? A bike. Anna can hardly believe it. Okay, it is a lovely bike and it does have five gears. But it simply isn’t a dog. A dog would have been pleased to be Anna’s present. A bike can’t be pleased. “Do you know what,” says Daddy, “Mummy and I are going to get our bikes out now and then we’ll show your bike the town together. Perhaps it would like that.” And the bike really does. Well it certainly hums as if it were happy and Anna is happy, too. And anyway, it’ll be her birthday again soon, won’t it? Then she’s sure to get a dog … | 7 +

                                    The morning starts at six with a pillow fight, at seven it’s time for the pixies to clean their teeth and splash the hens with water, and at nine o’clock they have to be at nursery school. The children accompany the little pixies Tim and Lu all through the day, using the clock to set the times from when Tim and Lu get up in the morning to when they go to bed at night and Father Pixie reads them a goodnight story.
                                    Colourful pictures depict the children’s eventful daily lives, and as a special feature, there’s a clock with moving hands that tick as they turn.

But what role do the seemingly friendly biology replacement teacher Dr. Dr. Quip, who is obsessed with flying, and the ‘resurrected’ Hulda Stingbeard play in all this?? And why is it Felix who is shrinking this time? Another fast-paced and gripping story by Sabine Ludwig.

                                                Once again, we meet Felix, Smithy and Ella of the bestseller and box-office hit "Help, I’ve Shrunk my Teacher" by bestselling author Sabine Ludwig (200,000 books from the Miss Braitwhistle series sold). Light-footed and hilarious narrative style.
