Borrowers PUFFIN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A Puffin Book - stories that last a lifetime. Puffin Modern Classics are relaunched under a new logo: A Puffin Book. There are 20 titles to collect in the series, listed below, all with exciting new covers and fun-filled endnotes. The Borrowers live in the secret places of quiet old houses; behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. They own nothing, borrow everything, and think that human beings were invented just to do the dirty work. Arrietty's father, Pod, was an expert Borrower. He could scale curtains using a hatpin, and bring back a doll's teacup without breaking it. Girls weren't supposed to go borrowing but as Arrietty was an only child her father broke the rule, and then something happened which changed their lives. She made friends with the human boy living in the house..."Beautifully written, poetic and almost always alarming, the Borrowers have something very mysterious, sad and exciting about them". (Sunday Times). Mary Norton was born in 1903 and brought up in a house in Bedfordshire, which was to become the setting for The Borrowers. First published in 1952, The Borrowers was an immediate success, winning the Library Association's Carnegie Medal. There followed four more Borrowers books: The Borrowers Afield (1955), The Borrowers Afloat (1959), The Borrowers Aloft (1961) and The Borrowers Avenged (1982). Poor Stainless was the last Borrowers story Mary Norton wrote. She died in 1992.

Enemy of the Ants Pfefferkorn

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Ants beware. When Jonas opens his box of matches, there's nowhere to hide. Not only is Jonas an enemy to ants, he hates cats, dogs, snails, cows ... and his grandmother, too. The boy's violent behaviour towards animals and other children is fuelled by frustration and anger. He worships his mother, but her undivided attention is hard to secure with all those "uncles" flitting in and out of their lives, not to mention the imminent new arrival whom Jonas has labelled the "football". When Jonas and his mother run away to grandmother's farm following a violent incident at their home, the little boy's world is turned on its head. His hateful grandmother spies on his every move from behind her bedroom curtains, his pregnant mother picks up a new man and the football is about to make its debut. Then Jonas gets involved with strange little Sarah, and a series of tragic events begins to unfold ... With literary finesse, Stephan Valentin examines the distress of a lonely child whose behaviour mirrors society's indifference to his plight. "A child deprived of love is a star without a sky. Readers of this book will succumb, as I did, to its distinctive lure. It says everything there is to say without feeling the need to explain. "-Vassilis Vassilikos "An enthralling book. Valentin's whirlwind narrative offers plenty of food for thought." -Süddeutsche Zeitung "Stephan Valentin describes a child's world with words that are simple, blunt and genuine. Impeccable." -Lettera.com "We cannot help but be won over by Jonas' distress, his acute loneliness, and by the tragedy that unfolds." -LE MONDE de l'éducation "A miniature linguistic masterpiece - moving, courageous and poetic." -Berlingske Tidende
