It’s 24 wagons are separated into class rooms, sleeping cars, a library, a bistro and everything else that is necessary to make a stay as comfortable as possible. The WEX is constantly moving from one city to another. It is full of secrets.

The Adults are Bonkers!

A funny approach to everyday family chaos and the different point of views of children and adults.

THE ADULTS ARE BONKERS!

by Franziska Gehm and Nicolai Renger (published by Magellan Verlag)

Let’s be real: adults can be quite strange! They cheer when the children are jumping on the trampoline, but not so much when it’s on the sofa. They really like paintings, but only on a piece of paper and not on the wallpaper. And splashing is only funny at the beach and not in the bathroom. No, you really can’t please the adults …

 

Interactive adventure for young heroes!

Magnus Myst’s Little Book of Bad.

This is Ueberreuter’s bestselling book, they have already sold almost 40,000 copies, it made it on the Spiegle Bestseller List and it is recommended as top-title especially for Boys (8+).

We don’t know the identity of the author, Magnus Myst. Somehow he managed to smuggle “The Sinister Book” into our publishing programme. Since then, mysterious things are happening here. Should you have any information about him, please let us know – you might help to stop the strange incidents. Magnus Myst calls himself a “magician” – and we all know that magicians don’t exist.

With all of the tricky puzzles and creepy-funny stories packed inside this little book of bad, even the most book-shy reader will stay interested. Only with the reader’s help can the pages of the little book of bad, which have been thrown together, be brought back into the right order, and the mystery of evil be solved.
