Help, I Shrunk My Teacher

Who is ever going to believe that 11-year-old Felix has shrunk the school director Dr. Schmitt-Gössenwein, who is universally hated, to a height of just 15cm? Even Felix himself has no idea how this happened and whether it has something to do with the ghost of the deceased school founder. What he does know, however, is that he is now saddled with the problem – quite literally given that the tiny school director is now sitting in his backpack, still arguing away.

Together with his friend Ella, he now has to try everything to get her back to her normal size and protect her against his rival Mario and his own unscrupulous father. If only she’d stop being so darn annoying …
