Flora Botterblom – The Pumpkin Effect (Volume 4)

Top trends: a combination of gardening and fantasy with a spunky heroine and her comic relief animal sidekick.
Sowing, planting, and harvesting – in Flora’s opinion that’s the epitome of boredom. Too bad she’s the youngest offspring of a family of market gardeners. But that’s about to change on her eleventh birthday when her grandfather lets her in on a huge family secret: Once, her family had cultivated very special vegetables – wonder vegetables! Unfortunately, the seeds were stolen … all but one that is! Now it’s up to Flora to grow the wonder hot pepper that can make animals talk, find the thief, and bring back the seeds. At her side: the grumpy headstrong armadillo Gisbert. And so begins the thrilling adventure Flora has dreamed about all her life …
