Sie werden sicher denken, dass ein Buch ohne Bilder langweilig und sehr ernst ist. Außer ... wenn das Buch so funktioniert: Alles, was in diesem Buch steht, MUSS vorgelesen werden. Selbst wenn da steht: BLORK oder BLuuRF. Selbst wenn es sich um ein absurdes Lied handelt, das davon erzählt, wie Sie einen Floh zum Frühstück verspeisen. Selbst wenn dieses Buch Sie dazu bringt, komische und peinliche Geräusche zu machen. Und vor allem – wenn Sie und Ihre Kinder nicht mehr aufhören können zu lachen! Wunderbar schräg und total albern – Das Buch ohne Bilder gehört zu den Büchern, die Kinder immer wieder vorgelesen haben wollen und Eltern immer wieder gerne vorlesen. Sagen Sie nicht, wir hätten Sie nicht gewarnt – dieses Buch kennt kein Erbarmen! Mit Audio-Lesung. Gesamtspielzeit: 4:50 Min. E-Book mit Audio-Links: Je nach Hardware/Software können die Audio-Links direkt auf dem Endgerät abgespielt werden.

Das kann ja heiter werden! Im ganzen Viertel ist man sich einig: Die Kinder der Familie Herdmann sind die schlimmsten Kinder aller Zeiten. Sie lügen, klauen, rauchen Zigarren (auch die Mädchen), bringen die Nachbarn zur Verzweiflung und können ein Klassenzimmer mit Hilfe ihrer halbwilden Katze in Rekordzeit vollkommen leer fegen. Zu allem Überfluss haben sie es auch noch geschafft, alle Hauptrollen im weihnachtlichen Krippenspiel zu bekommen. Womöglich steht damit die schlimmste Aufführung aller Zeiten bevor. Der etwas andere Weihnachtsklassiker von Barbara Robinson, übersetzt von Erfolgsduo Paul und Nele Maar, mit neuen, ebenso pfiffigen wie farbigen Illustrationen von Anke Kuhl, die ihre ganz eigene Geschichte im Detail erzählen.
