English sample & synopsis
The Countess and her Little Brother are about to embark on a big expedition into the rainforest in their back garden on a quest to track down the mythical Bogeyeribbon anaconda, a terribly dangerous giant snake. Equipped with harpoons and binoculars, the intrepid duo are ready for the jungle, where they encounter bloodthirsty swamp leopards, croaking frogs, goat traps and all sorts of other incredible things. The siblings are helped on their way by Little Brother’s matchbox-sized monkey, and a granny who lives in a house on stilts.
A skilfully-told humorous adventure story about siblinghood and adventures in one’s own back garden.
