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!

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. Unfortunately, Martin becomes wedged in the baby elephant slide with the huge blue ears – stuck so fast there, in fact, that he can neither move forwards nor backwards!
But then they have to take their punishment for the night-time escapade, which means they going on a camping trip with Dad and Grandpa to France – without any Nintendos, MP3 players or computer magazines to keep them amused. 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!

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.
