Iqbal & den hemmelige opskrift (Tilde Harkamp, DK, 2015)

Iqbal is a charming, imaginative and fun boy, which according to his father is not enough if you want to make it in life. But when Iqbal, his friend Sille and his little brother Tariq create a potent mixture that blows up the school building, Iqbal’s father is the least of his worries. Two criminals are eager to get a hold of the bomb recipe and use it to level Tivoli, the beloved amusement park in Copenhagen, to the ground and build a huge multi-storey car park instead. When Tariq fails to remember the exact recipe, the criminals kidnap his cute little brother Dindua. The hunt has started to free Dindua and save Tivoli. This requires cooperation, courage and not least lots of imagination.
