Lovable Heroes in Tricky Police Missions

Themes close to children’s hearts: animal protection and friendship

There’s no case that can’t be solved with brains, wit and friendship

One morning, Flopson the red panda wakes up and discovers that her friend Tjalle the streaked tenrec, has disappeared. Flopson scents a crime, and leaves her safe cage to try to rescue Tjalle. In the process, she encounters Fridolin, a mini dwarf pony. He joins in with her search, but instead of finding Tjalle, they find the injured blue tit Meili. Together, the three of them seek sanctuary in a disused police car. However, the grumpy Syrian hamster Jack has already taken up residence there and doesn’t want to share his home with uninvited guests. But when they find an important clue pointing to the whereabouts of Tjalle, the four very different animals join forces. Only together can they solve the mystery – as THE ANIMAL POLICE!

The new children’s series by Unipig creator Anna Böhm – second book in the series will be published in autumn 2021

Ludwig, Sabine (Author) Kreitz, Isabel (Illustrator)

Magical multiplication is all that can help here! Who is ever going to believe 12-year-old Felix that he has shrunk the maths teacher all the kids hate and that she is now just 15.3 centimetres tall? He himself has no idea how it happened! But now he has a problem on his hands, or rather in his jacket pocket - because that’s where the maths teacher is now and still complaining bitterly. How on earth is Felix going to get her back to her normal size again? Felix grows bolder and bolder as he tries to find out why the teacher has been transformed and in the process becomes less willing to let himself be bossed about. Most importantly, though, he happens on an incredible story that is supposed to have taken place 100 years ago... Full of suspense and funny situations – a book schoolkids can really identify with!

A Robber Who Doesn’t Want to Rob?!

Amusing and perfectly pitched for its target audience: the kind of topsy-turvy world that children love

New series by bestselling author Nina Weger: 175,000 books sold

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?

Miss Braitwhistle has gone missing – and at a really bad time, too, in Class 4a’s final term.

But instead of her teapot and cup, she pulls a thermos flask out of her bag. And her chalk suddenly doesn’t solve any maths problems any more! Were they all wrong about her? Could it be that Miss Braitwhistle doesn’t have any magical powers, after all? | 8 +

HURRAY! Miss Braitwhistle is back!
A for “absolute nightmare”, that’s what the old 4a used to be called. Now all the kids from 4a go to different schools. But luckily there will be a class reunion soon, where Frank, Aki, Paula and the others can meet up again. But the real fun only begins when Miss Braitwhistle, their enchanting ex-teacher, turns up and invites the kids to her place. And she has prepared a “little surprise” for them: party crackers that make wishes come true! And suddenly they all find themselves at the zoo in the middle of the night.
School life - Sabine Ludwig’s favourite subject and also that of her young (and not quite so young) readers: a wonderful reunion in the fourth volume of this bestselling series, refreshingly told with all the typically light-hearted Ludwig humour and illustrations by Susanne Göhlich.

Ludwig at her very best! Now school is being turned upside down

Class 4a is notorious throughout the school. A for “absolute nightmare” is what everyone calls it and class teacher Mrs Dove is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. To make matters worse, the school inspector announces a visit to the school and on the morning he’s due to come, the children are delighted to see Mrs Dove turn on her heel just outside the school gates. Of course, Class 4a erupts into chaos straight away, but then along comes Miss Braitwhistle, the exchange teacher from Newcastle upon Tyne. She takes charge of lessons and always stays as cool as a cucumber, even when faced with 4a. And the children suddenly discover that school really can be fun. They’ve never had a teacher like Miss Braitwhistle before. With her, they study the subject of blood circulation standing on their heads, the indoor swimming pool is turned into an ice rink, a horse comes to tea and Miss Braitwhistle even has a recipe for making the saddest dog in the world happy again. The pupils all agree: Miss Braitwhistle is simply fabulous and even the headmaster, Mr Fishley, is seen to smile for the first time.
But one morning, Mr Fishley comes into the classroom to tell the children that it’s time for Miss Braitwhistle to go back to Newcastle upon Tyne. He is clearly just as sad about this as the children, but they decide to take Miss Braitwhistle at her favourite words – wait and see –and cannot help believing that their favourite teacher will soon be back.

A modern Mary Poppins story, enchanting and humorous. With lots of illustrations by Susanne Göhlich.
