    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.

                            Close to their mucky hearts: Erhard Dietl's Ogglies go time-travelling again - this time in knight's armour.

                            How impolite! Oggly Grandma never thanked the Herb Lady who, some 800 years ago, gave her the love amulet that helped her to capture the heart of Oggly Grandpa.
                            It's high time to rectify this. So, together with the two Oggly children, Granny uses Brausewein's time machine to travel back to the Middle Ages. But their visit to the Herb Lady is just the start of it. The Ogglies find themeslves ravelled up in further matters of love: the evil knight Gregor has imprisoned young Gunhilde in his castle and is trying to force her to marry him - rather than the cobbler's apprentice whom she loves. The Ogglies think this is a stinker of an unfair plan. But can they free Gunhilde from the tower?

                            Travel back in time to the thrilling past.

                            Ideal reading matter for emerging readers: exciting and irresistibly funny.

                                      A boarding school for power girls! The pupils of the Matilda Imperatrix boarding school are all very special: Flo rides like the devil and she’s a fantastic sword fighter, too. Pina, on the other hand, is more the quiet type, and she can read animal tracks and is good at archery. When the extremely well-behaved Blanca joins them at boarding school, the two friends are a bit sceptical to begin with. But then Blanca turns out to be a pirate, and with her help, they succeed in freeing Flo’s little sister from the grasp of unscrupulous kidnappers.

                                      Highly entertaining: funny, fast-paced, exciting!
