Although the house is actually quite dilapidated, and it would cost a fortune to restore it, they’re convinced stingy old Great-aunt Knitzdeibl must have hidden her money somewhere, in savings accounts, stocks and shares and that kind of stuff! At least Jacob Pamperl, who lives next door to the Zwochs and is never called anything but "the boy next door" by any of them, is sure of this and sets out on a treasure hunt. | 10 +

                              It’s the middle of the night when the small pig’s curiosity gets the better of him and he sneaks into the white house at the edge of the village and settles down for a sleep on the sofa there. He has absolutely no idea that this is the house where the great big, greedy Grommels live. And they are anything but pleased when they discover their impudent guest the following morning. But a small pig isn’t going to be frightened by huge teeth and long claws, is he? Or is he? Author and illustrator Iris Wewer tells a wonderfully warm-hearted story of bravery and friendship, with a lovable main character and terrifying monsters, which is also perfect for nursery school.

                              A delightfully cheeky pig in a wonderful story of bravery and friendship

                                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...

Max has found a real friend in Mr Bello and that’s the way they both want it to stay! To make sure it does, Mr Bello regularly has to drink a peculiar blue juice that stops him from turning back into a dog. The trouble is, there’s only one bottle of the stuff. The recipe for the transformation drink was invented by Max’s great-grandfather and Max is certain there must be some old notes about the ingredients somewhere. When he and Mr Bello find his great-grandfather’s formula, they will be able to make the potion themselves! So they start searching – and have a thrilling adventure with a totally surprising end! The second story about Max and Mr Bello – uproarious, hilarious and packed with surprises!

There are sausages sizzling in the frying pan, but where’s the cook? Luckily, Mr Martin discovers that being invisible can also have its good side. He particularly likes it when Mrs Savitzky, his cleaner, unintentionally sits on his lap. Will she carry on doing it when Mr Martin stops being invisible?

What on earth should he do? Count sheep? No, the Little King would rather go back into the kitchen to check on the delicious pudding he and his friends cooked earlier on. He tries one small spoonful and then another… And suddenly his animal friends turn up in the kitchen, too. Of course, they all want a taste, as well. And before you can count to three, they have finished the bowl. But the pudding seems to be a slumber-inducing pudding because very soon the Little King and his friends are very, very tired and say “goodnight”.
