A glorious summer holiday is ruined for Anton when he discovers that the campsite has no pool! How can he show off his dive bombing and his swimming prowess? Instead, there is a lake. Unluckily, Anton hates lakes. It will take a miracle to get him into that murky water. Can the miracle happen? How Anton overcomes his prejudice is hilarious and delightful.

Anton and Piranha by Milena Baisch
OK, so going on holiday with your grandparents is not the coolest thing ever, but it's fine - Anton is planning to spend the summer in the pool. But then disaster strikes ...their holiday camp. Does not have a pool! Instead it has a lake - a lake filled with murky, slimy, dark disgusting sludge - and Anton just can't understand why everybody else is so happy to dive-bomb and swim in it all day long. Baking in the sun and dying of boredom away from the lake and the other young people on holiday, Anton has no idea how he's going to survive the holiday. That is until he meets an unexpected friend...
A funny, quirky new character for boy readers.
Translated by Chantal Wright. Anton and Piranha (Anton Taucht Ab) won the 2011 German Youth Literature Prize.
