Nöstlinger, Christine (Author) Schössow, Peter (Illustrator)

Luki-live was perfectly normal up to the summer holidays, but since he came back from England, everything has changed. You see, Luki-live has decided to become a character. He only wears second-hand clothes (in protest against fashion terror), rides an ancient bike (in protest against consumerism), knits (to relax) and in future only wants to say what he really thinks. This naturally gets him into a lot of trouble ... | 12 +

Nöstlinger, Christine (Author) Dietl, Erhard (Illustrator)

When Thesi was small, she didn’t know she had mousy eyes, a huge nose and a chin that isn’t really a chin at all. It was only when she started school that she realised there must be something wrong with her face. In this lively, funny story that remains realistic and credible from start to finish, Christine Nöstlinger tells how Thesi nevertheless learns to accept her looks in the end. | 12 +

Maar, Paul (Author) Maar, Paul (Illustrator)

Because the sun shines on Sunday and Mr Mon comes visiting on Monday, Tuesday is day two in the week and Wednesday is when some people have their weddings, because Thursday is the day of Thor, the god of thunder and Friday is the day people fry fish for dinner – that’s why, and only for that reason, Saturday is the day the Sat returns, that small creature with the trunk-like snout and red spiky hair whom good Mr Pocketbeer grew so fond of on his first visit. Luckily, the Sat hasn’t changed at all, except that he now knows all about complicated wish machines. In the end, he helps Mr Pocketbeer to make his own wishes come true. | 8 +

Maar, Paul (Author) Maar, Paul (Illustrator)

Sometimes Mr Pocketbeer is far from sure whether it really was the best of all wishes to have the Sat live with him forever. After all, the Sat has lost all the dots on his face and can no longer grant wishes. All he is now is impertinent and greedy. And the fact that Mr Pocketbeer has fallen in love naturally doesn’t please the Sat at all. If only he still had some dots! But it’s not so easy at all this time, and in the end, everything turns out quite differently – with the dots and so on. In any case, Mr Pocketbeer finds himself in some pretty mad, chaotic situations until his heart’s desire is finally fulfilled and he manages, with the Sat’s help, to make another, this time final step towards independence. | 8 +

Maar, Paul (Author) Maar, Paul (Illustrator)

Mr Pocketbeer is a timid person. He is afraid of his landlady, his boss and basically of anyone who scolds and gives orders – until one Saturday a Sat crosses his path and decides on the spot to stay with him. The Sat is a fearless, indeed almost irreverent creature who refuses to be intimidated by anybody or anything, who makes impertinent remarks everywhere he goes and scolds back when others scold him. Mr Pocketbeer finds all of this terribly embarrassing to begin with and tries to get rid of the Sat again in all manner of ways. Yet strangely enough, the longer the Sat stays with Mr Pocketbeer, the more fond Mr Pocketbeer grows of the Sat. And in the end, well-behaved, timid Mr Pocketbeer has turned into a self-confident person who has learned to stand up for himself. | 8 +
