A Robber Who Doesn’t Want to Rob?!

Amusing and perfectly pitched for its target audience: the kind of topsy-turvy world that children love

New series by bestselling author Nina Weger: 175,000 books sold

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 +

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?
