Lotte ja kadunud lohed

Lotte and the Lost Dragons | Lotte und die verschwundenen Drachen
‘What is this adventure?’ – ‘Adventures are the coolest thing in the world.’

Gadgetville’s own Lotte is back again with another madcap adventure! This time the curious little puppy has a new partner-in-crime: her baby sister. The fact that tiny Roosi is still wet behind the ears doesn’t stop Lotte from taking her along for some exploring in a world where magical happenings await at every turn. It doesn’t take long for the two to get wrapped up in a genuine adventure: Karl und Viktor, two professors looking to record the world’s oldest folk songs for a song competition, need their help finding a fire-breathing dragon. Thus begins an exciting, topsy-turvy journey that serves up its share of absurd surprises and encounters with a host of loveable, quirky characters.
