Once again, Paul Maar has created an amazing character – a troll!

Tojok, the little troll, lives with his parents in a small house on a mountain slope. He loves playing outside in the forest with his best friend, the wild tomcat. One day he is allowed to choose what he would like for dinner, but he can’t think of anything. So he asks all the animals, but they only recommend things like bark and fat mice. But then the wild tomcat comes up with a good idea.

The read-aloud reading starters from Oetinger have been created especially for preschoolers. Great stories by well-known authors serve as a motivation to learn to read. The books, with their many pictures, games and puzzles, are based on the concept of dialogic reading, and therefore primarily promote reading comprehension. | 5 +

The hobgoblings simply must do something! Perhaps, with a little help from King Hobgoblin’s spooky pipe, Brizetto’s magic wand and the readers’ spell, they will be able to rescue the sultana.

When it comes to sibling pranks, it never rains but it pours

Swapping piggy banks on the sly? Training flees (and letting them escape)? Feeding ponies with straw hats? Klara and her brother are never at a loss for a trick to play. That’s hardly surprising because siblings spend lots of time with each other – it’s like having friends who are always there.
