Enjoyable little reads with useful real life German. I wish we'd had something like this at school 45 years ago.

Having forgotten most of the German I learned in school (about 45 years ago) I wanted an easy way back into relearning it.
This little book is very easy to read - fairly simple (but usable) German is employed in the stories. An English translation is also included, together with a vocabulary list.
The stories are pretty simple, but there are a few elements of humour which make them enjoyable. Set in real life situations, I would argue that these stories are perhaps more effective for learning than traditional rote grammar methods.
I'll be buying the full series, since there are some more advanced texts available as well.
For anyone who wants a gentle introduction I'd say these are great.
