Boie, Kirsten (Author) Brix, Silke (Illustrator)

Little brothers are the nastiest things in the world, Anna thinks. But big sisters aren’t always what you would expect them to be, if you can believe Olli. Anna is nearly seven and in year one at school. Olli isn’t even four yet and has only just started nursery school. He doesn’t know anything about numbers and letters and things like that. All he knows is how to get on his big sister’s nerves – by secretly eating the chocolate out of the advent calendar, or wanting to join in when she’s dressing up with her friends. Then Mummy is always on his side. It’s quite obvious that Mummy loves Olli better. That’s not how Olli sees it, though. He’s never allowed to be in the room he shares with Anna when she’s playing with her friends, and she never gives him any of her sweets, either. No wonder Olli sometimes has to kick her. Then Mummy always scolds him. It’s quite obvious that Mummy loves Anna better. Sometimes, though, big sisters and little brothers can also be quite useful: like when it gets dark and there are dangerous robbers all over the place … | 4 +

Woolf, Marah (Author)

Sometimes dreams do come true! For this summer, Jess had really only planned a couple of lazy weeks in the Rocky Mountains. But then she meets good-looking Cayden, the boy with the emerald-green eyes, and he steals her heart away. But Cayden has his own agenda. He’s the son of a god and has made a pact with Zeus: only if he can find a girl able to resist his charms will Zeus grant Cayden’s dearest wish: to finally become mortal. Will Cayden play to win his game with the gods even if it costs Jess her heart?
