Good news for all Sat fans: the Wish Machine is back!

A brand-new Sat story, illustrated by acclaimed author Paul Maar.

The Sat isn't allowed to do anything! So it spends its days being bored while Mr Taschenbier is at work. Through the window, it spies a couple of children clambering aboard a dragon. The Sat wishes it could do the same. As the dragon shop is shut, though, the Sat decides just this once to use the forbidden Wish Machine. Lo and behold: a little dragon appears before him! An entertaining game of hide and seek ensues, because Mrs Rotkohl must, needless to say, not discover what's going on. However, there's no way to hide the fact that everyone is so happy all of a sudden. For the Sat managed to conjure up a Chinese lucky dragon!

The perfect present for young heroes

Jo lives with his mother on a sheep farm. Jo’s mum is strong and confident, whereas Jo is rather timid. But at Christmastime, his mum wants a little hero - at least, that’s what Jo thinks because he saw a superhero's cape drawn on her wish list, although he couldn’t make out what she had written underneath. When a wolf comes sloping through the snow, Jo sees his chance: he decides to be brave and chase the wolf away. But the wolf is just a tame herding dog. Good thing that mum didn't draw a cape on her wish list, but a red scarf. Because she always loves her Jo - whether he's a hero or not.

A Robber Who Doesn’t Want to Rob?!

A robber who doesn’t want to rob anyone. That’s Little Robber Rapido, Nina Weger’s lovable new hero. “But why do robbers have to rob people?” Little Robber Rapido wonders. The answer is quite obvious to his friend, Rapscallion the Raccoon. It’s because they’re called robbers! “But why are they called robbers?” Sigh. This is precisely the problem: Rapido asks too many questions. He thinks too much. In fact, he’s completely un-robber-like. His father, Robber-in-Chief Rigorous, thinks so too. But then Rapido proves them all wrong! | 5 +

Weger, Nina (Author) Kühler, Anna-Lena (Illustrator)

A pinch of Vicky the Viking. A taste of Robin Hood. And a large helping of Robber-in-Chief’s son Rapido.

What’s worse than a whirlwind in Pickpocket Woods? Or a bath full of floral-scented bubbles? You’ve got it: a Robber-in-Chief with toothache!

This creates a new task for the young robbers: the first one to extract the offending tooth from Rigorous’s mouth will win the prize. This isn’t entirely straightforward for Rapido, as the other young robbers are also full of good ideas. Fortunately, though, Rapido and his friend Rapscallion the Raccoon know the mysterious Jawcracker. Will he be able to help them out?
