MY LIFE AS LOTTA - OKEY DOKEY ALPACA! by Martina Plura
Lotta just cannot wait for her first school trip. But then it is not just Chanell, Cheyenne´s little sister, they have to take with them but also Lotta’s father volunteers to accompany the class as a chaperon! To make things worse, their new French classmate Rémi has a huge crush on Lotta. And as if that was not already bad enough, the youth hostel seems to be haunted: rooms disappear, Chanell disappears, and there are stories about a girl lost in the sand dunes. Are there any connections to an old legend of a poltergeist? Fortunately, there is Lotta´s gang the “Wild Rabbits” - you can always rely on them.
Based on the worldwide best-selling book series of the same name by Alice Pantermüller with illustrations by Daniela Kohl.
