Sleepless Magnus Where did my poop go? Kim Crabeels illustrations by Sebastiaan Van Doninck • Imaginative and fun stories by Kim Crabeels • With colourful and attractive illustrations by Sebastiaan Van Doninck • About a special, yet very recognizable boy Magnus cannot sleep, even though he is so tired.

After the imaginative story of Magnus who cannot sleep, the sequel of this series is back with a recognizable theme:

Magnus had to poop. He is incredibly proud. But then his dad flushes everything down the toilet and suddenly his poop is gone. Where did it go?

The seventeen-year-old Klaar minds the cat of her grandparents when they are off on a trip for the weekend. She has made a bet with a boy, Peer, about being able to learn herself how to type with her ten fingers in one weekend. If she fails the test, Peer can do with her whatever he likes. Here’s what she intends to do: train on her grandparents’ old typewriter, all weekend. But then she finds an old notebook in her grandfather’s handwriting, and

starts to read about his adventures in Canada, in 1929. Several people keep distracting her: Bilal, a construction worker who is giving her the eye, a peeping neighbour, the cat, her own growling belly. She finds out that her grandfather is on the run for something he’s done, and gradually she gets to know what really happened in Canada and why he came back. A woman is involved, his great love, who drowned before his eyes. Her own love for Peer is slowly dawning on her, and when she fails the typing test, nothing stands in the way of their getting together. Or does there?
