Gricksch, Gernot (Author)

Eleven-year-old Siri loves football. Her best friend, Ivana, is originally from the Ukraine but has already been living in Germany for six years. Siri can always rely on Ivana. And then there’s Siri’s schoolmate, Ole, who thinks he’s really something. Siri thinks he’s stupid … but (not that she would admit it) she also thinks he’s somehow hot, too. Siri doesn’t realise that Ole isn’t half as tough as he always makes out and that secretly he also quite likes Siri.
One day, independently of each other, both Ole and Siri come across three very bewildering “twins” dressed in kimonos. The three give each of the children a parcel. Both unwrap their present at home and discover a small, blue and pink-striped box with a large red button inside. The box is accompanied by a small card with the words: Please do not press! Of course, they both find it very hard to keep their fingers from pressing the button straight away – but Siri manages to resist the temptation, and so does Ole. On the following day, Siri’s teacher sets the class the task of splitting into twos and preparing a talk – and who should end up working together on the project than Siri and Ole? When they meet up at home to work on their talk, they notice that they have both been given one of the weird boxes with a button they are for some reason not supposed to press. Siri rings up her best friend, Ivana, who immediately joins them. What can these strange boxes possibly mean? But then bubbly Ivana suddenly grabs both boxes … and presses! The next day, the whole town is completely topsy-turvy. Women suddenly seem to prefer going to the DIY store than the shoe shop, the girls in school are being really loud and boisterous while the boys stand round in little groups, giggling and whispering. Even the cats and dogs have switched roles. Although their upside-down world is great fun for the children to start with, things suddenly begin to get more and more out of hand...
