Opel-Götz, Susann (Author) Opel-Götz, Susann (Illustrator)

You’re from another star? Sometimes what seems strange to us can be closer to home than we think!

Jonah has long been convinced that there are aliens from outer space living among Earthlings and that it’s just a question of identifying them. So when Henri turns up in Jonah’s class, the situation is crystal clear to him. It’s not just that Henri is foreign, Jonah is absolutely certain that Henri is an ALF – an “alien life form”. Jonah is sure he has at last come across a genuine extraterrestrial! While he is trying to find out all about Henri’s strange life, he barely notices how much he is getting to like Henri. And perhaps having him as a best friend is better than his being an alien? A tightly constructed parable about friendship and social differences, told with vivid imagery and beautifully illustrated by Susann Opel-Götz.

What a good thing Marie and Anne are there, too – because they know there’s absolutely no need for anyone to be frightened of pony mum, Lotta, and her frisky son, Lars the foal.

Maar, Paul (Author) Büchner, Sabine (Illustrator)

A new story from Paul Maar: Invisible dogs really do exist – and real friends, too!

Before Nick and Olly even met, they each had an invisible dog as a friend: Snuffi belonged to Nick, and Pucki the pug was Olly’s. But now Nick and Olly are suddenly best friends and have so much fun together that they don’t need their invisible companions any more. The dogs find it hard to believe what’s happening to them: Is this supposed to mean that just because they’re invisible, they don’t exist? That cannot be true! And so Snuffi and Pucki set out together in search of a new human friend.

With great charm, humour and imagination, the ideal book for first-time readers – beautifully illustrated by Sabine Büchner.

Kliebenstein, Juma (Author) Bux, Alexander (Illustrator)

Martin is fat (although he would call himself “chubby”). He also wears a large pair of red-rimmed glasses that his mum thinks are “dead smart” and he’s hopeless at sports. Instead he is well up on science and good with computers. Karli is Martin’s best friend. Karli is thin and weedy and no more athletic than Martin. When he gets excited, his voice goes all high and squeaky, and he uses sticky tape to glue his sticky-out ears flat to his head.
Martin and Karli would love to be cool, as cool as the Fab Five, the coolest boys in their class. The Fab Five think Martin and Karli are totally uncool and never tire of making the pair’s lives a misery by doing rotten things to them, like pouring smelly old cream that’s gone off into their satchels. But then Martin and Karli see their chance to take revenge! They happen to hear that the Fabs are planning to break into the outdoor swimming pool at night. But the pair’s plan goes horribly wrong. Before the Fabs turn up at the baths, Karli and Martin decide to take a dip themselves. Unfortunately, Martin becomes wedged in the baby elephant slide with the huge blue ears – stuck so fast there, in fact, that he can neither move forwards nor backwards!
But then they have to take their punishment for the night-time escapade, which means they going on a camping trip with Dad and Grandpa to France – without any Nintendos, MP3 players or computer magazines to keep them amused. Instead they have to work their way down Grandpa’s good scouts’ list. Will they ever find the time to get through their own list of way to get cool, for which a slinky walk and playing football are two absolute musts? The holiday turns out to be absolutely brilliant....

A rip-roaring, hilarious story with lots of slapstick!
