Italian for Beginners - Book Recommendations

Hi there.
I have a question and was wondering whether you had book recommendations for me.
My sister has decided to learn Italian by herself and has asked me about a book suitable for this task.

While I did have Italian at the university,  it was a intensive "crash" course with a book complete in Italian that depended on teacher-input, didn´t contain written dialogues and lacked an audio-cd, etc - so, clearly not the right thing.

We´re looking for a book that contains
a) texts/dialogues preferrably with an audio-cd to listen to
b) exercises and solutions
c) grammar part
d) vocabulary part
and is written for German beginner learners of Italian.

(If this rings any bells, similar to the Green Line school books for English.)
