Great for bridging the gap between textbooks and books written for native German speakers. The text is essentially a continuing story, with each chapter having a glossary after it, to look up words you don't know. It explains expressions and idioms that you're less likely to encounter in a text. The stories are fun to read.
I am not yet up to reading Andre's detective novels (and I'm not really into detective novels anyway, part of the problem) but I loved this book, Café in Berlin, Fred der Fisch, Bert das Buch, An Ocean Adventure and of course Peter und das Huhn. Please Andre, do some more intermediate German story books.

Please note: THERE IS NOT A TRANSLATION FOR ALL TEXT - ONLY FOR THE BOLD TEXT - if you don't understand the text that isn't in bold - stuff that is pretty basic German, you will be reaching for a dictionary all the time.
For me, <1 years lessons at the Goethe Institute in London, 3 hours per week and lots of Duolingo practice, this book was useful - I knew more or less all of the plain text and probably half of the bold stuff.
So, in summary; this book would be absolutely perfect for someone with about 6 months of German under their belt and if you haven't tried the wonderful Duolingo yet, it will help you with this tremendously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 25 Feb. 2014
By D. Thompson
I am at an intermediate level - completed Pimsleur, Michel Thomas etc and at the point where I am looking for actual material to read rather than just listen and repeat.
This is fantastic. Actually really funny short stories all in German, that gave me great confidence as I could read and understand 90% and then there is a guide to highlighted words/sentences at the end of each story.
Stories about 3/4 pages long, so you can read through, do the vocab, and then read through again fully understanding (hopefully!).
There is also a quiz at the end of each story.
Have purchased a couple of the Authors other books, and they are looking just as good.
Only downside is its only about 100 pages in total but I will go back and enjoy again once I have read the others. Also a good price - well worth it if you are at a point where you are moving on from lessons, but not quite at the point where you can say watch German TV or Film just yet.
Great job André keep them coming
Works with my Kindle based Collins German to English dictionary. With dictionary on Kindle the auto translation links in book do not work.
