By Jan Weiler,Till Hafenbrak

+++Das Neueste vom Pubertier - jetzt im Kino+++

Wenn es erst einmal wach ist, hält es die Welt in Atem: Das Pubertier. Und inzwischen hat sich Nick zu einem Parade-Exemplar entwickelt. Als männliches Pubertier besticht auch er durch faszinierende Einlassungen zu den Themen Mädchen, Umwelt und Politik sowie durch seine anhaltende Begeisterungsfähigkeit für ganz schlechtes Essen und seltsame Musik.

Er wächst wie Chinagras und trägt T-Shirts und Frisuren, die uns dringend etwas sagen wollen. Ansonsten allerdings ist die Kommunikation mit dem Pubertier auf ein Mindestmaß reduziert, es spricht wenig, dafür müffelt und chillt es ausgiebig. Und die Liebe spielt in diesem dritten Teil der Pubertier-Saga eine immer größer werdende Rolle sowie auch die Wahl der richtigen Schuhmode.

Im Pubertierlabor werden über einen möglichen Zusammenhang beider Phänomene Mutmaßungen angestellt. Gemutmaßt werden darf außerdem über die Frage, wann diese verfluchte Pubertät eigentlich aufhört. Der Erzähler schaut manchmal in den Spiegel und denkt: Eigentlich nie.

Chillen, relaxen, ausruhen: willkommen im Leben des Pubertiers -  Jan Weilers neuer Bestseller!
