The Barefoot Crew and the Stolen Granny
by Jörg Steinleitner/ Daniela Kohl
Something smells of adventure: summer holidays in the country can be like a whodunnit – where else can you find a missing Granny together with a real treasure and eight bare feet? Jörg Steinleitner brings his readers a true sense of well-being, in a world full of adventure. With varied and powerful illustrations by bestselling illustrator Daniela Kohl. Whoever thinks that summer holidays in the village are boring is mistaken: on the very first day of the holidays, Tanne’s Granny Schnitzel disappears without trace. It’s a good job that Corvin (9), Kiki (10), Ben (10) and Tanne (11) were just about to form a gang: the Barefoot Crew. And soon they have more than just bare feet and a kidnapped Granny to contend with – there’s also a real treasure! A hugely exciting criminal case with a breathtaking natural backdrop, together with varied feel-good factors that prompt readers to dream, discover and share in the story’s thrills. Best-suited for boys and girls aged 8+.
