In this Newbery Honor-winning novel, Gary D. Schmidt offers an unforgettable antihero. The Wednesday Wars is a wonderfully witty and compelling story about a teenage boy’s mishaps and adventures over the course of the 1967–68 school year in Long Island, New York. Meet Holling Hoodhood, a seventh-grader at Camillo Junior High, who must spend Wednesday afternoons with his teacher, Mrs. Baker, while the rest of the class has religious instruction. Mrs. Baker doesn’t like Holling—he’s sure of it. Why else would she make him read the plays of William Shakespeare outside class? But everyone has bigger things to worry about, like Vietnam. His father wants Holling and his sister to be on their best behavior: the success of his business depends on it. But how can Holling stay out of trouble when he has so much to contend with? A bully demanding cream puffs; angry rats; and a baseball hero signing autographs the very same night Holling has to appear in a play in yellow tights! As fate sneaks up on him again and again, Holling finds Motivation—the Big M—in the most unexpected places and musters up the courage to embrace his destiny, in spite of himself.

Nach dem großen Erdbeben in San Francisco ("Gefahr in der Feuerstadt" in dieser Nr.) erleben Anne und Philipp nun eine 2. berühmte Katastrophe der Moderne. Schon das Titelbild mit dem Sternenhimmel und dem Eisberg deutet es an: Das ist die Nacht, in der die "Titanic" sinkt. Es dauert aber eine Weile, bis das auch die Kinder merken. Sie sind gekommen, um ein Geschenk zu bekommen, das die böse Magie bekämpft, die Morgans Freiheit bedroht. Hilfsbereit wie immer retten sie ein Geschwisterpaar vor dem Tod und bekommen das rettende Geschenk. Erst im letzten Moment können sie sich mit dem magischen Baumhaus in Sicherheit bringen. Die schlicht und geradlinig erzählte Geschichte transportiert doch einige beherzenswerte Botschaften: Hilfsbereitschaft und Mitleid. Und wie wichtig Bücher sind, denn ohne sie könnte das Baumhaus die Kinder nie in andere Zeiten bringen. Nett ist auch das umgekehrte Rollenklischee mit dem draufgängerischen Mädchen und dem nachdenklicheren Jungen. Als Lesefutter überall möglich und sicher begehrt.. Anne und Philipp kommen auf die "Titanic". Sie retten ein Geschwisterpaar, aber wird es ihnen gelingen, selbst rechtzeitig vom Schiff zu kommen? Ab 8.

Bringing together children’s literature scholars from China and the United States, this collection provides an introduction to the scope and goals of a field characterized by active but also distinctive scholarship in two countries with very different rhetorical traditions. The volume’s five sections highlight the differences between and overlapping concerns of Chinese and American scholars, as they examine children’s literature with respect to cultural metaphors and motifs, historical movements, authorship, didacticism, important themes, and the current status of and future directions for literature and criticism. Wide-ranging and admirably ambitious in its encouragement of communication between scholars from two major nations, Representing Children in Chinese and U.S. Children’s Literature serves as a model for examining how and why children’s literature, more than many literary forms, circulates internationally.

Mary Clare is on the lookout for a miracle. Mary Clare O’Brian is determined to be a saint when she grows up (the halo will help cover her frizzy hair). But lately none of her prayers seem to be working the way she wants them to: her mother is losing her faith, her parents can’t pay all the bills, and her brother receives a draft notice for the war in Vietnam. Mary Clare has a plan to help, but it just doesn’t seem to be working. How is she supposed to become a saint when her world is falling apart? Dear Mother Superior, My name is Mary Clare O'Brian and I am in sixth grade. I would like to join the convent right after 8th grade before I start liking boys too much. I’m already having problems with boys liking me. Gregory in my class throws spitballs at me and told my best friend he likes me. I haven’t told him that I want to be God’s bride yet. Do you think I should?
