Tim Burton - The Nightmare Before Christmas
In all the world, there's no place like Halloweenland, and Jack Skellington is Halloween's most important figure. It's Jack who devises Halloween's most macabre tricks and frights, and he's done it year after year with delight. But this year, something isn't q uite right: Jack has grown bored with the usual Halloween pranks, and the joy of seeing shock and horror on people's faces has faded. One night, while out for a walk in the woods, Jack stumbled upon something he's never seen before: a strange door carved into a tree. Stepping through the door, Jack tumbles into a world unlike any he's ever known. He finds himself in a bright, cheerful, colorful place called Christmas Town. Immediately captivated by all the Christmas sights - shining tinsel, sparkling lights, gayly wrapped presents, and sweet confections - Jack knows that he must somehow find a way to become part of it all. And Santa Claus himself provides the key as Jack decides to bring Christmas to Halloween - with Jack starring in Santa's role! The Nightmare Before Christmas is an inspired, irreverent, charmingly conceived fantasy, illustrated and written by one of the leading visionaries in the film world, Tim Burton, who directed the movies Batman, Edward Scissorhands, and Beetlejuice, among others.
Dr. Seuss - The Cat in the Hat
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines.Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world. Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do . . . until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to the concern that "pallid primers [with] abnormally courteous, unnaturally clean boys and girls' were leading to growing illiteracy among children, The Cat in the Hat (the first Random House Beginner Book) changed the way our children learn how to read.

Richard Scarry - Tesz-vesz szótár
Ebben a könyvben több mint 1500 szót és ugyanannyi képet találsz. Sőt mi több, háromszor annyi szót, mert a TESZ-VESZ SZÓTÁR-ban a magyar szavak mellett angol és német szavakat is találsz. Igazi szótárt tartasz a kezedben, amelyet, remélem, örömmel forgatsz majd, hiszen a képek - mint egy negyedik, közös nyelv - sokat segítenek. Meglátod, milyen érdekes összehasonlítani a három nyelv szavait. De jó, ha tudod, hogy az angol és német szavak kiejtése eltér az írástól. Ha még nem tanulsz idegen nyelvet, kérj meg valakit, aki tud angolul vagy németül, hogy tanítson meg a helyes kiejtésre. Még egy mulatságot találsz majd a könyvben. A könyv írója és rajzolója Richard Scarry sok apró rejtvényt ad fel neked, így a böngészés mellett még keresgélhetsz is! Jó szórakozást!
