Description
Popular German children's author and illustrator Ute Krause (who also gave us Oscar and the Very Hungry Dragon and Nick and the Nasty Knight) here depicts a most unusual fractured family in hilarious ink and watercolor cartoons. A young bandit tells us how his bandit dad and bandit mom began to argue, and then separated, so the seven bandit siblings now shuttle weekly from one house to another. And as if that isn't bad enough, one day they find that a princess and her own children have moved in with Dad. How will the bandits get rid of these royal pains—and what will happen when Mom falls in love with a dragon with kids of his own? All turns out well for this 22-person-and-dragon family, however, in this tale for readers 4 to 8.

"In the end, a hilarious picnic finds all interacting in splendid camaraderie. Each of Krause's 22 family members is unique and memorable, while her colorful scenes lend atmosphere and a quirky spin to each humorous page. The comfortable acceptance of the new order shows parents who have 'enough love in their hearts for all of us'."—Booklist
