Mr Pocketbeer does all he can to persuade the Sat to come back home. He meets Mr. Mon on Monday, on Tuesday, he goes to work and busily chews on his pencil, Wednesday is happily the middle of the week, and on Thursday, the day of Thor, the god of thunder, Mr Pocketbeer personally creates thunder with his rolling pin and a tin pan. And his efforts pay off: on Saturday, the Sat returns – bringing lots of new wish dots with him! Daddy Pocketbeer immediately starts making wishes, but although the Sat has told him often enough how to wish properly, quite a few things go wrong this time round, as well.

Paul Maar’s timeless stories about the cheeky Sat are simply never boring, and most certainly not with Nina Dulleck’s new illustrations.

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 +

I would like an exciting Sat, a funny Sat, a brand-new Sat!
If only Martin Pocketbeer hadn’t taken the Sat and the Sat retrieval drops with him on his class trip! Because his teacher steals the drops and takes possession of the Sat. Not that that’s so easy to do as the Sat belongs to the Pocketbeer family. If anyone else asks him to grant them a wish, his wishes have unexpected side-effects. And the Sat himself feels worse and worse, too. So Martin and his friends Tina and Roland set out to rescue the Sat. But there are plenty of complications, mix-ups, Sat poems and first-rate suspense before they finally succeed! | 6 +

Maar, Paul (Author) Dulleck, Nina (Illustrator)

Martin Pocketbeer is the fourth-smallest in his class and the second-weakest. When it comes to shyness, he’s the number one. Martin would love to be like all the others, but he simply hasn’t the confidence. That’s how things are until he goes on a skiing trip with his class after the Christmas holidays, where he gets to know the Sat, a cheeky, irreverent creature who refuses to be intimidated by anybody or anything and can mysteriously make wishes come true. Martin’s greatest wish is to be somebody else – a wish the Sat cannot grant, but he does help him to be braver and more confident. When the week of skiing is over, Martin for the first time feels he belongs and knows that he has now found his place in the class. | 7 +

Maar, Paul (Author) Dulleck, Nina (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.

Another classic in the Sat series with new colour illustrations by the successful artist duo Paul Maar and Nina Dulleck. At once timeless and modern, with lots of humour in aid of greater open-mindedness and tolerance. | 7 +

The new Sat – the sixth adventure about blue dots that make wishes come true – is here and Martin Pocketbeer is delighted that the Sat is back again at last. Perhaps he can even lend a hand to get rid of Uncle Alvin from Australia, who has taken up residence with the Pocketbeers and is driving everyone bonkers. He could simply wish him away! But sadly the wish dots are still on the face of Mr Daume, the mean old sports teacher, and he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth. And that is not the only problem Martin and his friends have to contend with – Uncle Alvin is also good for the odd surprise! | 10 +

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 +

Luckily, the Sat and Mr Pocketbeer manage to escape by making another wish, and this time they land right beside the wish machine. At last Mr Pocketbeer can try it out. And what’s the first thing he wishes for? Loads of money! It works, and the whole room is suddenly filled with coins and banknotes – but all in the wrong currency. | 7 +

Rudi’s dad collects stamps and as Rudi thinks everything his dad does is wonderful, he starts collecting, too. But not stamps, they’re too small and boring for him. Rudi collects labels: off apple-juice bottles, beer bottles, wine bottles, lemonade bottles, ketchup bottles, liqueur bottles, vinegar bottles, oil bottles – there isn’t a label Rudi won’t collect. As soon as they find out about his hobby, the neighbours simply leave their empty bottles outside the door. Usually there are only a few “good” labels among them. When Rudi has removed them, he has to take the mountain of bottles to the bottle bank. No wonder collecting is gradually getting on his nerves, but he doesn’t dare to stop because his dad would surely be disappointed in him. Luckily, his grandmother has an idea. | 6 +
