Transformation guaranteed, falling in love a possibility!
Up to this Friday, everything in Ophelia’s life had been boringly normal, at least as normal as it can be when you have three aunties and a twin sister who can change into a clown fish or a waitress at the drop of a hat. Fifteen-year-old Ophelia has enough on her plate coping with all this chaos, so the last thing she wants is to suddenly have the same shape-changing ability. But maybe a bit of magic could help her make Adrian, the boy of her dreams, fall in love with her. Or would it be better to just be herself?

A touch of magic, first love and the topsy-turvy chaos of everyday catastrophes:

Whether you’re out and about or at home, its handy size makes it ideal to carry around with you. Practical games at the end of each story help to fill the time whenever you have to wait. A must-have for anyone who has to spend time waiting with children.

                        Class 4a is very excited to have Miss Braitwhistle back again! She immediately sets to work, and no matter what she turns her hand to, a school outing in a golf buggy, a cycling proficiency test for left-hand traffic or a visit from two English tortoises called Harry and Willy, this teacher is always good for a surprise. Miss Braitwhistle is enchanting, in the truest sense of the word. And this time she really pulls out all the stops and – as though by magic – ends up saving more than the day on 4a’s tedious school outing.

                          Miss Braitwhistle has gone missing – and at a really bad time, too, in Class 4a’s final term. It isn’t until Aki, Franz & co. decide to raise funds for their class kitty that she suddenly turns up behind her desk again. 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 +

                            Franz and Aki have actually made it into Year 5! But isn’t there still a story about the chaotic 4a that has never been told? Of course there is, the story of their class trip! Imagine Miss Braitwhistle on a trip with her 4a! That could only end in muddle and chaos.

                              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.

                                Ludwig at her best: spooky classroom goings-on that are guaranteed to raise a smile!
                                Twelve-year-old Felix Vorndran’s newly won friendship with his pals, and above all with Ella, is put to an acid test. But what role do the seemingly friendly biology replacement teacher Dr. Dr. Quip, who is obsessed with flying, and the ‘resurrected’ Hulda Stingbeard play in all this?? And why is it Felix who is shrinking this time? Another fast-paced and gripping story by Sabine Ludwig.

                                Once again, we meet Felix, Smithy and Ella of the bestseller and box-office hit "Help, I’ve Shrunk my Teacher" by bestselling author Sabine Ludwig (200,000 books from the Miss Braitwhistle series sold). Light-footed and hilarious narrative style.

                                “Sabine Ludwig mixes the creepy adventures of schoolchildren with elements of fantasy. The liveliness of the book stems above all from its humour, which emerges from the smallest incidents. The result is often hilarious!”
                                Berliner Zeitung

                                “Sabine Ludwig’s fans must read it, and for those who have not yet read any of her books, it is recommended unconditionally.”
                                Der Tagesspiegel

                                “Excitement is guaranteed with this book by Sabine Ludwig.”

                                  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.

                                    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!
