Who is WilliamTell? A hero? A rebel? Or a killer who ambushes his victim? Why do people talk about him although he never really existed, and why is his image on penknives, crayons and on the Five Franc Coin?

Tim has to find out. Together with his sisters he follows the traces of the Swiss national hero and discovers why William Tell is important for him as well.

In the Bear's Library

All Lucas really wants is to buy a piece of raspberry pie, but he gets lost in the old town of St Gallen. Thanks to Rahel, he discovers the Abbey Library of St Gall, where he meets Notker Balbulus, Otmar, Wiborada and Gallus. Lucas finds out how the city of St Gallen came into being and that it is not important where you come from, but what you do with your life.

With illustrations by Patricia Keller and a postscript by Cornel Dora
