The Magic Pact

The most magical adventure since the discovery of chocolate! Do you believe in magic and miracles? Everyone in the little town of Belony takes magic and miracles for granted – everyone except Elina, who thinks it’s all a load of nonsense.

That is, until her nervous neighbour Charlie happens to get hold of a bar of chocolate that has a very strange effect on her. Suddenly Elina is convinced that Charlie has fallen under a spell. Of all people, it’s shy Robin who comes to the girl’s rescue. He is a member of a Candy Guild family – people who have the ability to create magic sweets that will help others.

This is how he knows that only the mysterious Candy Guild can lift the curse on Charlie. With a suitcase full of magic sweets, the three of them set out on a dangerous quest. Because not everyone keeps to the pact that magic sweets should only be used to do good…

The Candy Guild. The Magic Pact is the first in a new series of magic-fantasy books for children aged 9+ – as enchanting as chocolate and as wild as a Christmas cracker!

Paper Piano

Sixteen-year-old Maia finds herself in an exciting phase of her life, but also a dangerous one: shortly before her A-levels.

Sixteen-year-old Maia finds herself in an exciting phase of her life, but also a dangerous one: shortly before her A-levels.

As one of three children, each with a different father, she is sometimes subject to ridicule, but she does not let people push her aside. Flippant, with two best girl friends and a little hip fat, she goes bravely through life. She is true to herself and stands by her friends, come what may. Maia writes down her emotions here, using pictures to fill in the blanks when she cannot find the right words. The style is both free and witty, sensitive and vulnerable – just like Maia herself.

Every morning Roy rides excitedly to kindergarten on his horse Desperado. But one day everything is different: the kindergarten has been ransacked, the seesaw is broken and the swing has been torn down.

And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Heidi the kindergarten teacher has been kidnapped by the evil bandit Black Beard! Roy and Desperado set off immediately to follow his tracks in the sand.

As experienced trackers, they find his secret hideaway in no time. But can they free Heidi? Roy wouldn’t be the bravest rider, and Desperado his most fearless of horses, if the two of them didn’t have a brilliant plan. By combining brainpower and horsepower, they manage to chase Black Beard away and bring Heidi home. What an adventure! Or, as Roy puts it: “just your average day at kindergarten”.

Oskar is three and, over the course of a year, he has all kinds of adventures with his sister Klara and his stuffed animal Theo. He talks about colourful ‘labadoons’, playing puppet theatre with Dad, his summer holiday in the mountains with Grandma and Grandpa and how much he hates washing his hair.

He tells us how he gets books out of the library, rides his bike with Mum, and watches seals at the zoo. And he paints a lively picture of the time he played bandits with Enno, baked cookies with Mum and Klara, and ran into his neighbour Mr Smithson.

Soon it’s Oskar’s fourth birthday! Which means he’s totally not a baby anymore and no longer has to take naps at kindergarten. This book features 42 little everyday stories that all preschool kids can relate to.

The 20 most important things in life.

The 20 most important things in life.

First of all, you need a great friend you can really rely on. And a mum who comforts and cares for you – even if she’s annoying sometimes. Another crucial item on the most-important-things list is an aunt or grandma who always has time to play.

Every child should have their own room, bed and bike as well as a soft toy or pet animal to cuddle. And they should be able to cook their favourite meal and play an instrument. Christoph Hein also illustrates why discoveries and inventions should be part of every child’s life, and why good stories, tears and being in love are all necessary for perfect happiness.

Everyone in Heartswood is overjoyed when a cute little unicorn is born. But this unicorn is unlike any other. Cute as it looks, it doesn’t behave at all like the fairytale creature it is supposed to be.

Everyone in Heartswood is overjoyed when a cute little unicorn is born. But this unicorn is unlike any other. Cute as it looks, it doesn’t behave at all like the fairytale creature it is supposed to be.

Its favourite word is “NO” – and all efforts to cuddle it and feed it juicy four-leafed clovers are met with a grumpy “NO!”

So it’s no surprise that one day the unicorn decides to break free of this candyfloss world and seek out its own adventures. On its journey it meets a racoon who never listens, a dog who doesn’t give a damn and a princess who’s always answering back. And they make a great team. Because even being stubborn is much more fun together!

The year is 2099 and it is the most important day of Elaine’s life: she is taking part in the annual vortex race. During this competition, dozens of young people race around the globe – but not on foot. They move through the vortices that transformed and almost destroyed the world some decades ago. Jumping into a vortex is potentially fatal.

If you manage it, however, the vortex will transport you from one place to another within seconds, like a secret portal. Only the best competitors can become professional vortex runners – something Elaine has aspired to for a very long time. But the moment she succeeds, her allegiances are tested; and the person responsible is a boy who used to be her idol, but who turns out to be completely different from what she’d expected...

“Vortex is a fast-paced journey through an entirely new world, a captivating firework of ideas with a strong heroine. I couldn’t put it down.” Ursula Poznanski

And Jukka is determined to finally discover the big world beyond the bay. The two kids, who have become fast friends, start their journey to the White Mountains, Lila and Kandidel‘s home.

Moonshine Dragon and Monster Shock

On a peaceful, clear moonlit night, Philipp lies in bed, counting the stars quietly. All of a sudden, he hears a rustling sound coming from under his bed. From an open book, its pages are flipping rapidly.

The next moment – Philipp can’t believe his eyes – a tiny dragon flies out of the story, calling for help. Just as Phillip decides to help the dragon, he shrinks to the dragon’s size. This and other exciting stories of dragons, monsters and planets far, far away illustrate that friendship, bravery and courage count much more than being big.

Cornelia Funke‘s 70 books for children and young adults have been translated into over 50 languages and reached a worldwide readership of more than   31 million.

The first in a new series of feelgood read-aloud books featuring topics like urban gardening, sustainability and the joy of gardening in the urban jungle. Kathy and her parents used to live in Grandma’s apple orchard in the country.

The first in a new series of feelgood read-aloud books featuring topics like urban gardening, sustainability and the joy of gardening in the urban jungle. Kathy and her parents used to live in Grandma’s apple orchard in the country.

When she and her family move to the big city, it takes her a while to get used to the hustle and bustle, the noise and the sheer number of people. But Kathy wouldn’t be Kathy if her outgoing nature didn’t help her make friends quickly. Together with her new friend, city boy Theo, she explores the city and soon finds the odd green patch even here. Cheerful and true-to-life, the Kathy read-aloud books tell everyday stories that ‘reading- aloud-age’ children can identify with.

They describe a sheltered but not idyllicised childhood in the city, and everything that comes with it: family life, friendships, kindergarten/school, children’s worries and how we grow through dealing with them. Nature, sustainability and mindfulness play an important role and, in passing, the books touch upon everyday nature-related topics drawn from children’s experiences, such as harvesting apples, setting up a plot to attract snails, planting flowers, insect hotels, etc.

After little Major Tom and his astronaut girlfriend Stella bring their Chinese friends back to the ISS, new adventures await them. In the latest book, Volume 12, Yuki the robot dog is to be tested for his abilities in space. It quickly turns out that Yuki can do everything better and faster than Plutinchen the robot cat.

The roboticists at the ground station are delighted with the excellent results of the robot dog and are considering replacing Plutinchen with Yuki. But Tom and Stella are only moderately enthusiastic about it.
