Super for heroes not yet reading for themselves!
Who says superheroes are only for older children? Marmelo, who saves bread and jam from falling jammy-side-down on the floor, is probably cooler than Spiderman was at the age of four. And Super-Erik saves an entire town from mega-mean Mega-Panda. With these superheroes around, who’s going to wait for Batman or until they can read for themselves? And in any case, being read to is always super!

Crazy, hilarious read-aloud stories in vibrant colours!

Muffle and me, unwilling superheroes! While out surfing, Tim and his rather dopey dog Muffle happen to save the most popular boy in school from drowning, and from that moment on, he tells all and sundry that his two rescuers are endowed with superpowers. Suddenly, Tim is “RockeTim”, the person to call if someone gets into difficulties. Only Tim and Muffle themselves know that they are, in fact, anything but superheroes, but they do all they can to keep that quiet and actually end up surpassing themselves.

Great slapstick fun with hilarious black-and-white illustrations. Entertaining, amusing, and perfect for boys who don’t usually enjoy reading!

Our new cult character “Berti” – now for beginning readers

Could anything be more exciting than a child’s first day at school? Hardly. But Berti’s first day surpasses them all. To start with, the whole family wakes up so late that Berti can’t even change out of his pyjamas before setting off for school. Then his daddy drives like a madman, which does not amuse the police, at all. Berti can’t count on his big brother, and a sprint to school turns into a wild chase. Will Berti make it to school on time? And what about his first-day-of-school cone filled with treats and presents?

The secret hero of the family: Little Berti

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!

Book 2 The Heroines Club. High Treason at Boarding School will follow in autumn 2017

Alarm at the Matilda Imperatrix! Who destroyed the boarding school’s bee hives? Pina, Flo and Blanca immediately pick up the trail and discover that it was none other than a little bear that’s wandering the woods. Pina, in particular, feels for the baby bear because she knows exactly what it’s like to be all alone and without parents.
But a small bear is no cuddly toy, of course and before long panic breaks out among the girls. A bear, so close to their school, isn’t that terribly dangerous? Before long, the first farmers in the village are preparing to hunt the bear down – and Pina, Flo and Blanca realise that they need to act fast if they want to save the little bear!

Exciting, clever and bear-friendly: this club is there for everyone!
