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?

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.

How on earth is Felix going to get her back to her normal size again? Felix grows bolder and bolder as he tries to find out why the teacher has been transformed and in the process becomes less willing to let himself be bossed about.

A robber who doesn’t want to rob anyone. That’s Little Robber Rapido, Nina Weger’s lovable new hero. “But why do robbers have to rob people?” Little Robber Rapido wonders. The answer is quite obvious to his friend, Rapscallion the Raccoon. It’s because they’re called robbers! “But why are they called robbers?” Sigh. This is precisely the problem: Rapido asks too many questions. He thinks too much. In fact, he’s completely un-robber-like. His father, Robber-in-Chief Rigorous, thinks so too. But then Rapido proves them all wrong! | 5 +

Ludwig at her very best! Now school is being turned upside down

Class 4a is notorious throughout the school. A for “absolute nightmare” is what everyone calls it and class teacher Mrs Dove is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. To make matters worse, the school inspector announces a visit to the school and on the morning he’s due to come, the children are delighted to see Mrs Dove turn on her heel just outside the school gates. Of course, Class 4a erupts into chaos straight away, but then along comes Miss Braitwhistle, the exchange teacher from Newcastle upon Tyne. She takes charge of lessons and always stays as cool as a cucumber, even when faced with 4a. And the children suddenly discover that school really can be fun. They’ve never had a teacher like Miss Braitwhistle before. With her, they study the subject of blood circulation standing on their heads, the indoor swimming pool is turned into an ice rink, a horse comes to tea and Miss Braitwhistle even has a recipe for making the saddest dog in the world happy again. The pupils all agree: Miss Braitwhistle is simply fabulous and even the headmaster, Mr Fishley, is seen to smile for the first time.
But one morning, Mr Fishley comes into the classroom to tell the children that it’s time for Miss Braitwhistle to go back to Newcastle upon Tyne. He is clearly just as sad about this as the children, but they decide to take Miss Braitwhistle at her favourite words – wait and see –and cannot help believing that their favourite teacher will soon be back.

A modern Mary Poppins story, enchanting and humorous. With lots of illustrations by Susanne Göhlich.
