The delightfully loveable Patchwork Family – the new children’s book by bestselling author Stefanie Taschinski

Emma and her family are the new people at number 11! But it would be so much more interesting if all the neighbours made up a great big family together – like a patchwork rug. No sooner said, than done! Old Mrs Becker becomes simply Granny Becker, and for all the other children in the house, Emma’s dad becomes their dad, too. There’s just one neighbour who doesn’t want to be part of the patchwork family: the mysterious earl who lives on the ground floor! But how crazy would it be if the combined efforts of the patchwork family didn’t get to the bottom of their invisible neighbour’s secret?

A charming combination of children’s daily life and a heart-warming family story with an element of feel-good suspense | 8 +
