But then Mrs Owl has to go away and Monsieur Hibou, her French stand-in, turns the whole bookshop upside down, comes with a tiresome Persian cat and a mysterious crystal ball and, on top of all that, instead of chocolate tarts, provides baguette with smelly cheese! All is uproar until Mrs Owl returns and they can finally celebrate Clara’s birthday together.

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.

Class 4a is very excited to have Miss Braitwhistle back again!

Miss Braitwhistle has gone missing – and at a really bad time, too, in Class 4a’s final term. It isn’t until Aki, Franz & co. decide to raise funds for their class kitty that she suddenly turns up behind her desk again. But instead of her teapot and cup, she pulls a thermos flask out of her bag. And her chalk suddenly doesn’t solve any maths problems any more! Were they all wrong about her? Could it be that Miss Braitwhistle doesn’t have any magical powers, after all? | 8 +

HURRAY! Miss Braitwhistle is back!
A for “absolute nightmare”, that’s what the old 4a used to be called. Now all the kids from 4a go to different schools. But luckily there will be a class reunion soon, where Frank, Aki, Paula and the others can meet up again. But the real fun only begins when Miss Braitwhistle, their enchanting ex-teacher, turns up and invites the kids to her place. And she has prepared a “little surprise” for them: party crackers that make wishes come true! And suddenly they all find themselves at the zoo in the middle of the night.

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.
