    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

    With three previously unpublished stories

                  “My name is Harro, Lord Donnersmarck, of ancient and noble pedigree. Anton calls me Pug.
                  There’s nothing much you can say about that, names are one of those things. Anton, for example, isn’t a boy, as you might think, but a girl. But she is a very special girl and there’s not much I wouldn’t do for her. I proved it, too, just recently when a strange woman, an even stranger girl and – dreadful! – a cat had the gall to move in into my house – just because Anton’s father decided he needed another wife. I could really understand that Anton was furious. But then, when there wasn’t a peaceful spot left anywhere in the house, my bowl didn’t get filled up regularly any more and all Anton could do was cry, I took action and even made friends with the stupid cat – just to restore the peace.”
                  Anton’s Pug has a sharp-tongue, but puts wit and suspense into his story. Truly, a gifted pooch!
                  Sabine Ludwig wrote down the story and it was filled up with colourful pictures, page after page, by Sabine Wilharm, who has repeatedly caused quite a sensation with her illustrations over the past few years. | 8 +

                    So what’s cool? Just what boys want! From today, Leo and Mug are going to be cool! How? That’s obvious. Sunglasses on their noses, music bouncing off the walls, watching horror films and staying up as long as they like. Cool boys naturally have pets like big, hairy spiders or vicious-looking rats, and burping and farting at the table are an absolute must. But what are they going to do with their cat and their dog now? And when they come to think about it, they actually like watching children’s films best! Very soon, Leo and Mug realise that being cool is an exhausting business! Innovative, striking pictures – also great fun for adults. | 5 +

                      The Ogglies as aids to medicine – that’s just bound to go wrong!
                      Grump-fart-devil! Professor Fizzywine knows that tummy ache is a terrible thing! He also knows that Ogglies never have tummy ache even though they gobble up the most peculiar things – for example, rice-nail casserole with smelly socks au gratin. There must be a reason for this, the professor thinks and, with the aid of the Ogglies, sets to work developing an efficacious remedy for tummy ache with the aim of winning first prize at the Inventors’ Congress. The trouble is that he hadn’t reckoned with the Ogglies’ stubbornness. And then Professor Fizzywine’s medicine turns out to have a completely different effect from the one he intended!
                      Great fun for all Oggly fans: the first Oggly novel for children with lots of colour illustrations by the author.

Semra, Carlo and Ben are faced with a mystery: the pet shop has been burgled, but at first sight there’s no evidence of anything having been stolen. The odd thing is that the doors of all the guinea pigs’ cages are wide open. Once six guinea pigs have been recaptured, it becomes clear that the seventh is missing. A surveillance video puts the three sleuths on the trail of a shady diamond smuggler. More cases to come!

In each one, there are five full-page mystery pictures containing answers and clues that bring Ben, Carlo and Semra step by step nearer to solving the case.

                                                            Introducing Mats and Lina:
                                                            Lina has been five years old for far too long already (once she’s six she’ll be able to go to school at last) and Mats is three (he can’t remember how long he’s been that old). The pair are brother and sister and they’re as thick as thieves – and that’s a good thing because when Lina starts putting one of her ideas into practice, there’s usually excitement in store for both of them. And Lina has an idea for every situation! Her ideas involve real fire fighters, secret hiding places in the playground at nursery school, a runaway from the riding school on the edge of town and the digger-dumper driver from the building site next door…

This dream comes true for Jan and Julia. | 4 +

But they also have to feed and look after it. The guinea pig needs food every morning and every evening and the cage has to be cleaned out from time to time, too. | 4 +

Brother and sister encounter lots of new things on their journey and are often completely amazed by what they see. | 4 +

That’s because there are lots of things in the circus you don’t get to see every day: trick riders and clowns, lions, tigers and elephants, acrobats high up in the big top and ponies to ride on. | 4 +

What a good thing they’ve got parents who take good care of them and help them pass the time by playing games and reading them stories. That way, getting better again is much easier. | 4 +

A shame that the money in Bertie’s piggy-bank will only stretch to a crayfish called Eddie. What’s anyone supposed to do with a crayfish? Bertie, however, finds Eddie super-cool. He looks fantastic with his red claws. But his brothers find it too boring just to watch Eddie. Eddie needs to have an adventure. But how’s it going to end for Eddie? Bertie simply has to save him! | 6 +
