“Knietzsche und das Hosentaschen-Orakel” | Anja von Kampen | Mixtvision, Germany | 272pp | 10+
Knietzsche has the worst birthday of all times: when he’s turning twelve, he’s told that he is adopted. All his biological parents have left him is a broken pocket watch, which suddenly comes to life … As if that wasn’t crazy enough, that same day, he meets Mildred. Her father is imprisoned on remand for allegedly stealing valuable paintings from the museum. Mildred is wildly determined to prove his innocence. Of course, Knietzsche and his friends Norbert, Pepe and Darina help her with it. Anja von Kampen writes a funny and sweeping mixture of a suspenseful crime story and fantastic adventure book, about truth, courage and one big mystery.
