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 +

        Heger, Ann-Katrin (Author) Marshall, Anna (Illustrator)

        With lots of ideas for interactivity
        The read-aloud/interactive series - story time with a difference. From now on, story time means reading aloud, discovering details and joining in – even for boys – because in addition to the ten exciting adventure stories about mediaeval knights, pirates and gangs of robbers, there are also lots of different ideas about ways for the young readers to get active themselves. For example: “Which dragon would you like to fly on?”, “How many pirates can you spot on the ship?” and “Can you touch your feet with your hands?”

        The new interactive concept with hints at the end of the book on reading aloud fosters language skills and is lots of fun, too. Age-appropriate conversation ideas, questions and puzzles encourage readers and their young listeners to take a hand in the stories themselves.
