Welcome to the WORLD Hockey-Kids!
It’s not just the stormy autumn weather that turns the lives of Lena, Max and Lars upside down – the first few days in their new school without hockey are dull and tedious, and to make matters worse they keep bumping into Leo and his show-off friends. The only thing that’s adventurous are their grades …
That is, until the day when the Hockey-Kids not only meet three cool new friends behind a rusty old gate but also go on to experience the most colourful hockey adventure imaginable with them. From now on, the hockey balls are spinning through the air, hockey is rediscovered in all sorts of places and as if by magic, the six friends become the WORLD Hockey-Kids.
But the magic quickly seems to be over when Leo of all people turns up and wants to get involved …
A new and captivating Hockey-Kids adventure by Sabine Hahn. The book invites you to actively join in rediscovering hockey in an imaginative and original way and to immerse yourself in its many worlds; from Africa to Asia, from far and wide, with or without a wheelchair, hockey is full of surprises and is simply the best sport in the world, for everyone, everywhere. For boys and girls from the age of 9

Lena, Max and Lars are speechless:
Of all people to get landed with, the three friends find themselves in the new hockey project with Lena’s cheeky little brother and Tom, the show-off from the soccer club.
Things couldn’t get much worse than that! Or could they?
What other reasons could they have for secret meetings in the school yard, and what do Tom’s red ears mean?
Join them in “The Adventure Begins”, the first book in the Hockey Kids series, when – despite lots of amusing setbacks – a team comes together, the like of which has never been seen before!
A fascinating adventure all about friendship, school and the greatest sport in the world - hockey!

With 100 pages and lots of charming illustrations - also the author’s work - this series is particularly suitable for primary school pupils, whether they are new to hockey or already young hockey players.
An inspiring foreword by international FIH elite coach Chris Faust and a motivating epilogue by Marijke Fleuren, President European Hockey Federation, complete the exciting adventure experienced by the three friends Lena, Max and Lars, and arouse interest in this sport.
