    Frixe, Katja (Author) Waters, Erica-Jane (Illustrator)

    Stella’s best friend, Vega, is a shooting star in the shape of a girl who simply fell from the sky. Luckily, in Stella’s opinion, because Vega is absolutely fabulous. And on top of that Stella could really do with some help right now. Her family is about to reopen its old costume rental shop very soon and the whole town is coming to the grand opening. The trouble is that Stella’s big brother is lovesick and that her friend Pauline is searching for her missing aunt. It’s a good thing Vega has the power to grant wishes.

        Inkiow, Dimiter (Author) Reiner, Walter (Illustrator) Reiner, Traudl (Illustrator)

        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        With three previously unpublished stories

                                                                Lucy is really excited because today is her first day at nursery school. But once she gets there, she discovers the hours pass in a flash! Lucy plays ships in the playground with Lena and Ricki, and the children collect leaves and chestnuts in the woods; they bake biscuits and make moon lanterns. But the very best thing about nursery school is the super nursery party Lucy has with her new friends.

It’s great fun for the children to name and to spot their favourite animals.
