Es gibt nichts Schöneres, als einen Bären zu entführen, ihn zum Tanzen zu zwingen und damit den großen Reibach zu machen. Das denkt zumindest der fiese Mr Gum! Doch er hat die Rechnung ohne Polly gemacht, die dem treuherzigen Tier zu Hilfe eilt. Und erstmals verlassen die kultigen Figuren Bad Lamonisch an der Bibber und entdecken fremde Welten. Harry Rowohlt hat sich bei der Übersetzung dieser ausgezeichneten Folge mal wieder selbst übertroffen und schafft den Spagat zwischen literarischer Poesie und hintersinnigsten Gemeinheiten.

Böse – böser – Mr Gum! Mr Gum hasst Kinder, Tiere, Spaß und Mais mit Butter und Salz. Dafür liebt er es, lange im Bett zu dösen und böse zu gucken. Er lebt in einem völlig heruntergekommenen Haus – sein Garten allerdings ist der schönste der ganzen Stadt. Das liegt an der bösen Fee, die in Mr Gums Badewanne wohnt und ihm mit einer Pfanne eins überzieht, wenn er seinen Garten nicht pflegt. Das alles wäre ja in Ordnung, wenn nicht eines Tages ein Hund auftauchen und den Garten beim Spielen verwüsten würde. Um die Fee ruhigzustellen und den Hund für immer loszuwerden, beschließt Mr Gum, das Tier zu vergiften. Davon bekommt das kleine Mädchen Polly Wind, und für sie ist klar: Sie muss dem bösen Mr Gum die Stirn bieten!

Es geht mal wieder rund in Bad Lamonisch an der Bibber! Mr Gum ist nämlich auf einen alten Fluch gestoßen, der äußerst vielversprechend klingt: Sollten die Flügel der verlotterten alten Windmühle sich je wieder drehen, geht das kleine Städtchen augenblicklich in Flammen auf. Mr Gum ist begeistert. Das will er sehen, und deshalb nimmt er die alte Windmühle schnurstracks wieder in Betrieb. Aber so einfach, wie der alte Zausel sich das vorstellt, ist die Sache nun auch wieder nicht. Denn für den Feuerzauber braucht er noch die zwei magischen Kristalle, die allerdings hat Polly. Und das genau ist das Problem ...

Humor in Contemporary Junior Literature

In this new book, Julie Cross examines the intricacies of textual humor in contemporary junior literature, using the tools of literary criticism and humor theory. Cross investigates the dialectical paradoxes of humor and debunks the common belief in oppositional binaries of ‘simple’ versus ‘complex’ humor. The varied combinations of so-called high and low forms of humor within junior texts for young readers, who are at such a crucial stage of their reading and social development, provide a valuable commentary upon the culture and values of contemporary western society, making the book of considerable interest to scholars of both children’s literature and childhood studies. Cross explores the ways in which the changing content, forms and functions of the many varied combinations of humor in junior texts, including the Lemony Snickett series, reveal societal attitudes towards young children and childhood. The new compounds of seemingly paradoxical high and low forms of humor, in texts for developing readers from the 1960s onwards, reflect and contribute to contemporary society’s hesitant and uneven acceptance of the emergent paradigm of children’s rights, abilities, participation and empowerment. Cross identifies four types of potentially subversive/transgressive humor which have emerged since the 1960s which, coupled with the three main theories of humor – relief, superiority and incongruity theories – enables a long-overdue charting of developments in humor within junior texts. Cross also argues that the gradual increase in the compounding of the simple and the complex provide opportunities for young readers to play with ambiguous, complicated ideas, helping them embrace the complexities and contradictions of contemporary life.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.
