About this book

Language: German

Crime stories for children from 7 years and upwards, that transmit knowledge about nature: this makes reading kids books fun!

Scary offenders in close proximity – domestic animals can be ruthless when they are hungry.

The victim: the honeybee.
The culprit: the Death's-head Hawkmoth – to get at the honey, he puts on a cloak of invisibility made from fragrance, so that he smells like bees.

The victim: the female toads in spring.
The culprit: the male toads – murder in the throes of passion. In the tumultuous pairings many males cling to a female and sometimes drown her!

The victim: the earthworm.
The culprit: the mole - he kidnappes earthworms in his pantry and paralyzes them with a targeted bite to the head. The earthworms now remain as a fresh food supply.

60 hair-raising cases featuring local wildlife are told with a wink in this book. Exciting background information, quizzes, experiments and detective duties make the book a nature activity book for children from 7 years, which might creep them out a bit, but above all fascinate them.

Summary in German:
Krimigeschichten für Kinder ab 7 Jahre, die ganz nebenbei Naturwissen vermitteln: so macht Bücherlesen Kindern Spaß!

Unheimliche Täter in nächster Nähe – heimische Tiere sind manchmal ganz schön skrupellos, wenn sie Hunger haben.

Das Opfer: die Honigbiene.
Der Täter: der Totenkopfschwärmer – um an den Honig heranzukommen, setzt er eine Tarnkappe aus Duft auf, damit er so riecht wie die Bienen.

Das Opfer: die Erdkrötenweibchen im Frühling.
Der Täter: das Erdkrötenmännchen – Mord im Liebesrausch. Im Paarungsgetümmel klammern sich viele Männchen an ein Weibchen und ertränken es mitunter!

Das Opfer: der Regenwurm.
Der Täter: der Maulwurf – entführt Regenwürmer in seine Vorratskammer und lähmt sie mit gezieltem Biss in den Kopf. Die Regenwürmer bleiben nun frischer Vorrat.

60 haarsträubende Fälle aus der heimischen Tierwelt werden in diesem Buch mit Augenzwinkern erzählt. Spannendes Hintergrundwissen, Quizfragen, Experimente und Detektivaufgaben machen aus dem Buch ein Natur-Mitmachbuch für Kinder ab 7 Jahren, das ein bisschen gruselt und vor allem fasziniert.
