In Karsten and Petra's Summer Book, we have combined two stories about Karsten and Petra.
In Karsten and Petra Want to Learn How to Swim, Karsten and Petra are on a boat trip with Grandpa and his girlfriend, Esther, and they stop on an island. Neither Karsten nor Petra can swim, but they still have fun in the water, and after a while they even dare to dive down and put their heads completely underwater! So it seems that Karsten and Petra will most certainly learn how to swim soon.
In Karsten and Petra Go on a Trip, Petra's mom takes Karsten and Petra on a camping trip in the woods. They take backpacks and sleeping bags, and Lion Cub and Ms. Rabbit even get to come along as well. There's a lot to do in the forest! They swim, play hide-and-go-seek, grill and look for animal tracks.
The books about Karsten and Petra are among the most popular for children between 3 and 6. Themes focus primarily on friendship and playing. The first books about Karsten and Petra came out in 1992, and there are still new books about the two good friends coming out today. In recent years, many children have gotten to know Karsten and Petra and their stuffed animals through the films that have been made about them.
