Following the recipe of long standing family entertainment tradition, Franziska Buch gives us a story both funny and smart and displays lots of heart and humor! Conni and Paul have to start at a new school and find it hard to make friends. Especially since Paul caves under peer pressure and agrees not to be friends with Conni anymore because she's a girl. Conni still has her consolation prize: a little puppy her parents give to her. But then it turns out that her kid brother is allergic and the little dog already has an owner: the awful headmaster of Conni's new school. She'd accept it all until she learns that Paul's new boy friends convince him to prove himself to them by doing something very stupid and dangerous. Plus - the headmaster is only using his sweet puppy to sell him for TV commercials. That's enough: Conni has to save them both! How she manages both tasks without getting in even more trouble and how she finds new friends by doing the right things, that's what it's all about. Nicely done! Kids love every single character, grown ups are not put off by the story. What more can you ask?
