GG! These letters have been sprayed all over walls in Kreuzberg. The sprayers even targeted Maria’s café! Kemal, Karim, Kevin and Katya – together the Graffiti Gang – have certainly made their presence felt in the area and that’s something Pellie, Bella and Max are anything but pleased about! And to cap it all, Alberta, Maria’s waitress, not only has her bike stolen, but someone breaks into her flat, too. Kreuzberg 007 begins to investigate. All clues soon point to the Graffitis being the culprits.

Heger, Ann-Katrin (Author) Marshall, Anna (Illustrator)

With lots of ideas for interactivity
The read-aloud/interactive series - story time with a difference. From now on, story time means reading aloud, discovering details and joining in – even for boys – because in addition to the ten exciting adventure stories about mediaeval knights, pirates and gangs of robbers, there are also lots of different ideas about ways for the young readers to get active themselves. For example: “Which dragon would you like to fly on?”, “How many pirates can you spot on the ship?” and “Can you touch your feet with your hands?”

The new interactive concept with hints at the end of the book on reading aloud fosters language skills and is lots of fun, too. Age-appropriate conversation ideas, questions and puzzles encourage readers and their young listeners to take a hand in the stories themselves.
