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!

Carl Barks - Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge - Only a Poor Old Man
Uncle Scrooge classics for all ages! Since Fantagraphics’ first release in this series focused on Donald Duck, it is only right that the second focus on Carl Barks’s other great protagonist, and his greatest creation: The miserly, excessively wealthy Scrooge McDuck, whose giant money bin, lucky dime, and constant wrangles with his nemeses the Beagle Boys are well-known to, and beloved by, young and old. This volume starts off with “Only a Poor Old Man,” the defining Scrooge yarn (in fact his first big starring story) in which Scrooge’s plan to hide his money in a lake goes terribly wrong. Two other long-form classics in this volume include “Tralla La La” (also known as “the bottlecap story,” in which Scrooge’s intrusion has terrible consequences for a money-less eden) and “Back to the Klondike” (Barks disciple Don Rosa’s favorite story, a crucial addition to Scrooge’s early history, and famous for a censored bar brawl that was restored in later editions). Each of these three stories is famous enough to have its own lengthy Wikipedia page. Also in this volume are the full-length “The Secret of Atlantis,” and over two dozen more shorter stories and one-page gags. Newly recolored in a version that combines the warm, friendly, slightly muted feeling of the beloved classic original comic books with state-of-the-art crispness and reproduction quality, the stories are joined by another volume’s worth of extensive “Liner Notes,” featuring fascinating behind-the-panels essays about the creation of the stories and analyses of their content from a world’s worth of Disney and Barks experts. Full color throughout.
Carl Barks - Walt Disney's Donald Duck - Lost in the Andes
The first in a historic series of books collecting the comic book stories of “The Good Duck Artist.” Carl Barks’ Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics are considered among the greatest artistic and storytelling achievements in the history of the medium. After serving a stint at the Walt Disney studios as an in-betweener and a gag-man, Barks began drawing the comic book adventures of Donald Duck in 1942. He quickly mastered every aspect of cartooning and over the next nearly 30 years created some of the most memorable comics ever drawn — as well as some of the most memorable characters: Barks introduced Uncle Scrooge, the charmed and insufferable Gladstone Gander, the daffy inventor Gyro Gearloose, the bumbling and heedless Beagle Boys, the Junior Woodchucks, and many others.
