In the middle of this year, the next part of the Marmelin series "The Shaking Island - Together against a Virus" will be released.
This time, Potato, Arin and the Marmelin go ashore on a large, unknown island. But something on this island is strange - she seems to be shaking and shivering. Has she perhaps caught a cold? In addition, the Marmelin sees many strange glowing drops floating through the air - Do they have something to do with the shivering island? Or with the fact that more and more islanders are getting sick? The Marmelin, Arin and Potato get to the bottom of the island's mystery. It soon becomes clear to them:
The island needs their help!
"The Shaking Island - Together against a Virus" wants to put the topic of a pandemic into perspective for young readers. The everyday life of many children was suddenly turned upside down. This part of the Marmelin series is meant to be a little support. It offers the possibility to make the obscure and foreign topic tangible for children. The story describes a small search for clues to the origin of a disease. Marmelin, Arin and Kartoffel find out more and more about it and learn to understand it. In the end, the three realize what needs to be done: they and the islanders can only help if they pull together and show solidarity.
As always, the focus is on adventure on the mysterious island. But children can also take a look over the edge of the book and learn how the Marmelin deals with a pandemic and what he would do in their place.
