A sárkányok könyve


A sárkányok könyve leírásaEdith Nesbit (1858 – 1924) a gyermekeknek írt mese- és fantáziairodalom úttörője. Klasszikus fantasztikus meséi, mint Az elvarázsolt kastély, A halász hetedik fia meg az Öt gyerek és az izé hazánkban is ismert és szeretett szerzővé tették, könyveihez használtan is szinte lehetetlen hozzájutni. A sárkányok könyve című kötet témája hálás és kedvelt: a sárkányok – mindenféle fajtából – azért vonulnak föl a könyv lapjain, hogy felhőtlen kikapcsolódást hozzanak a gyermekeknek. Néhányuk mókás és csintalan, mások kifejezetten ijesztőek, számosan vadak és kiszámíthatatlanok. Az egyik jégből van, a másik a postahivatalban keres menedéket, egy újabb pikkelyes óriás pedig elragadja az állatkert legnagyobb elefántját. Még olyan is akad, amelyiknek békés dorombolása megnyugtat és megvigasztal egy tipegő kisgyermeket.No de kik szállnak szembe ezekkel a lenyűgöző teremtményekkel? Hát persze, hogy merész kis hősök, jórészt 8 – 12 éves gyermekek, meg egy gonosz herceg, sőt, egy teljes futballcsapat is, amely eltűnik egy elvarázsolt könyv lapjairól felszálló brutális sárkány tüzes leheletében. Kötetünk nyolc történetet tartalmaz, és első ízben kerül magyar nyelven az olvasók elé. A könyvet Vaspöri Cintia kedves rajzai díszítik, minden mesét egy-egy eredeti és bájos grafikával kiegészítve. Minden meserajongónak ajánljuk ezt a lenyűgöző és minden lapján új csodákat felvonultató remek könyvet, melyet finom humorral, meghitt szeretettel és végtelen fantáziával írt meg a szerző.

Five Children and It


From A to Z, the Penguin Drop Caps series collects 26 unique hardcovers--featuring cover art by Jessica Hische It all begins with a letter. Fall in love with Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of twenty-six collectible and hardcover editions, each with a type cover showcasing a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet. In a design collaboration between Jessica Hische and Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, the series features unique cover art by Hische, a superstar in the world of type design and illustration, whose work has appeared everywhere from Tiffany & Co. to Wes Anderson's recent film "Moonrise Kingdom" to Penguin's own bestsellers "Committed "and "Rules of Civility." With exclusive designs that have never before appeared on Hische's hugely popular Daily Drop Cap blog, the Penguin Drop Caps series debuted with an 'A' for Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice," a 'B' for Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre," and a 'C' for Willa Cather's "My Antonia." It continues with more perennial classics, perfect to give as elegant gifts or to showcase on your own shelves. N is for Nesbit. While exploring the environs of their summer home, five brothers and sisters find a Psammead, or Sand-fairy, in a nearby gravel pit: "Its eyes were on long horns like a snail's eyes, and it could move them in and out like telescopes; it had ears like a bat's ears, and its tubby body was shaped like a spider's and covered with thick soft fur; its legs and arms were furry too, and it had hands and feet like a monkey's." The Psammead is magical and, every day, the ancient and irritable creature grants each of them a wish that lasts until sunset. Soon they find their wishes never seem to turn out right and often have unexpected--and humorous--consequences. And when an accidental wish goes terribly wrong, the children learn that magic, like life, can be as complicated as it is exciting. "Five Children and It" continues to be one of our most enduring stories, as fantastical and as it is true to the wonders of childhood.

The Lark


'A charming and brilliantly entertaining novel... shot through with the light-hearted Nesbit touch' Penelope Lively, from the introduction"When did two girls of our age have such a chance as we've got - to have a lark entirely on our own? No chaperone, no rules, no..." "No present income or future prospects," said Lucilla.It's 1919 and Jane and her cousin Lucilla leave school to find that their guardian has gambled away their money, leaving them with only a small cottage in the English countryside. In an attempt to earn their living, the orphaned cousins embark on a series of misadventures - cutting flowers from their front garden and selling them to passers-by, inviting paying guests who disappear without paying - all the while endeavouring to stave off the attentions of male admirers, in a bid to secure their independence.'To come upon any Nesbit today, hitherto unread... is like receiving a letter from a friend whom you have believed dead' New York Times
