Maar, Paul (Author) Ballhaus, Verena (Illustrator)

A story that takes us back to the days of fairytales and adventures. Full of wordplay and told with irony, it features a wealth of colour illustrations, some full-page.
As none of the suitors who asked for her hand were to her taste – you see, she wasn’t just rather beautiful, but also rather haughty – princess Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora hit on the unusual idea from having herself kidnapped by a monster. When the king then announced that the man who would rescue his daughter should marry her and be given half the kingdom, the bravest and most handsome princes would come from afar. But the monster – probably a vegetarian – wasn’t the tiniest bit interested in the princess, just in the delicious chocolates she had with her. So Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora more or less had to kidnap herself if her plan was to work.
And nothing else went according to plan, either. One by one, the princes who had set out to rescue Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora, returned home empty-handed. Then Simplinella, Princess of Lützelburgen, who had more sense than all the princes put together and her heart in the right place, decided to try her luck – and succeeded. This not only gained her half a kingdom and eight barrels full of gold pieces, but also the heart of the Crown Prince of Großburgen, who had been the monster so long as he was under an evil spell. What became of Princess Henriette-Rosalinde-Audora? Well, naturally she was not particularly pleased to be “rescued” by a princess and had to put off her wedding plans for a while. | 8 +

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?
