                                                  Martin is fat (although he would call himself “chubby”). He also wears a large pair of red-rimmed glasses that his mum thinks are “dead smart” and he’s hopeless at sports. Instead he is well up on science and good with computers. Karli is Martin’s best friend. Karli is thin and weedy and no more athletic than Martin. When he gets excited, his voice goes all high and squeaky, and he uses sticky tape to glue his sticky-out ears flat to his head.
                                                  Martin and Karli would love to be cool, as cool as the Fab Five, the coolest boys in their class. The Fab Five think Martin and Karli are totally uncool and never tire of making the pair’s lives a misery by doing rotten things to them, like pouring smelly old cream that’s gone off into their satchels. But then Martin and Karli see their chance to take revenge! They happen to hear that the Fabs are planning to break into the outdoor swimming pool at night. But the pair’s plan goes horribly wrong. Before the Fabs turn up at the baths, Karli and Martin decide to take a dip themselves.

Instead they have to work their way down Grandpa’s good scouts’ list. Will they ever find the time to get through their own list of way to get cool, for which a slinky walk and playing football are two absolute musts? The holiday turns out to be absolutely brilliant....

                                                  A rip-roaring, hilarious story with lots of slapstick!

                                                              The little owl from the bestselling board picture book “Ow!” Said the Owl now also in picture-book format for children of 3 and over!

                                                              »To the beautiful stars in the sky is where I want to fly.« The little owl loves the way the stars twinkle high up in the night sky. But how can she possibly reach them? The answer is clear - it’s time she learnt to fly! She practises and practises and in the end, just as she’s flying as high as she possibly can, Daddy holds her back and Mummy takes the little owl in her arms and explains that she can never fly far enough to reach the stars. But then the little owl notices a shooting star coming quite near to her – and, of course, it brings her lots of luck.

                                                              With a wonderful message of encouragement and a touching happy end. | 3 +
