It takes Brandon Brown less than a day to find trouble while on vacation with his family in Bavaria. He quickly learns that in Bavaria, bad decisions, and careless mischief can bring much more than a 12-year-old boy can handle alone. Will he and his new friend, Justin, outwit their parents, or will their mischievous antics eventually catch up with them?

The exceptionally low unique word count and high-frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Brandon Brown entdeckt Bayern’, make this an ideal read for very beginning German students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and German), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible.
