Alina and Conrad are woken by a loud bang. A plastic bottle has exploded in the kitchen! Yesterday, the kids had put some yeast in that bottle. How can a little piece of yeast make a bottle blow up?
This graphic novel conveys the science of yeast and microorganisms in an entertaining way. Factual explanations alternate with the story of the two children. Drawings, photographs and microscope images make it easy for children to understand the chemical processes involved.

Lilo and Balz
Episodes from Lilo and Balz’s everyday life are told in graphic-novel style. The two schoolkids are best friends, and together they play, fight, dream, fall sick, and get up to all kinds of mischief. They have lots of clever ideas, too, like building a soapbox cart, throwing boomerangs, exploring caves, or playing pranks. The speech-bubble texts are short, making for an easy and enjoyable reading experience.Translation from German by Simon Froehling and Anna Sophie Wendel
In the Bear's Library
Lucas moves house from Geneva to St Gallen. Moving is tough, especially when your new classmates are the opposite of helpful. One day when he’s looking for some lunch in the old town, he gets lost and ends up in the Abbey Library. There he encounters the main characters from the library’s past – Gallus, Otmar, Wiborada and Notker Balbulus. They tell him all about the history of the abbey and how the city of St Gallen grew up around it.Cleverly weaving past and present, the author brings the dramatic story of the abbey’s origins to new life. The colourful illustrations at the beginning of each chapter summarise its content with a pinch of humour. Illustrator Patricia Keller recreates elements of illuminated manuscripts, like those housed in the abbey’s famous library.Translation from German by Lucretia Jacomet with Simon Froehling

In 2017 they received the annual Swiss Children’s and Youth Book Award. This entertaining book is an excellent introduction to reading.Translation from German by Shelley Frisch
The Cat and the Devil
A bridge over the river Loire? Of course the residents of the French town of Beaugency wanted a bridge, but how much would it cost? No money at all, said the Devil. All I ask is that the first person who crosses the bridge shall belong to me. A delightful tale based loosely on the Devil’s Bridge legend.James Joyce wrote this story in 1936 for his grandson, Stephen James Joyce. It is one of the few children’s stories penned by the great Irish author, who lived in Zurich at various times. The story’s publication with SJW came about in an initiative led by Stephen James Joyce himself.
