When it comes to sibling pranks, it never rains but it pours

Swapping piggy banks on the sly? Training flees (and letting them escape)? Feeding ponies with straw hats? Klara and her brother are never at a loss for a trick to play. That’s hardly surprising because siblings spend lots of time with each other – it’s like having friends who are always there. You can come up with the most delightful pranks, like tasting the cake mum’s just baked and going back for more for so long that you might as well just finish it off.

Dimiter Inkiow’s brother-and-sister classic

Weger, Nina (Author) Kühler, Anna-Lena (Illustrator)

A pinch of Vicky the Viking. A taste of Robin Hood. And a large helping of Robber-in-Chief’s son Rapido.

What’s worse than a whirlwind in Pickpocket Woods? Or a bath full of floral-scented bubbles? You’ve got it: a Robber-in-Chief with toothache!

This creates a new task for the young robbers: the first one to extract the offending tooth from Rigorous’s mouth will win the prize. This isn’t entirely straightforward for Rapido, as the other young robbers are also full of good ideas. Fortunately, though, Rapido and his friend Rapscallion the Raccoon know the mysterious Jawcracker. Will he be able to help them out?
