Jim Button and the Wild 13

About the Play

This is the second part to Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer (Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver), and once again the two heroes go through a lot of adventures with fantastic creatures. And of course, they are once more as thick as thieves! Old and new friends join them on their great journey. This time, they have to bring down a gang of pirates, but that is by far not all – after all, the secret about Jim Button's strange arrival in Lummerland is still not solved.
