Roald Dahl - Matilda (angol)
Matilda is an extraordinarily gifted four-year-old whose parentsa crass, dishonest used-car dealer and a self-centered, blowsy bingo addictregard her as "nothing more than a scab." Life with her beastly parents is bearable only because Matilda teaches herself to read, finds the public library, and discovers literature. Also, Matilda loves using her lively intelligence to perpetrate daring acts of revenge on her father. This pastime she further develops when she enrolls in Crunchem Hall Primary School, whose headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is "a fierce tyrannical monster . . . ." Adults may cringe at Dahl's excesses in describing the cruel Miss Trunchbull, as well as his reliance on overextended characterization at the expense of plot development. Children, however, with their keenly developed sense of justice, will relish the absolutes of stupidity, greed, evil and might versus intelligence, courage and goodness. They also will sail happily through the contrived, implausible ending. Dahl's phenomenal popularity among children speaks for his breathless storytelling charms; his fans won't be disappointed by Matilda. Blake's droll pen-and-ink sketches extend the exaggerated humor. Ages 9-11.
J. R. R. Tolkien - Kürtő úr
_Kürtő urat könnyű felismerni, hiszen nem sokan szaladgálnak olyan hatalmas kalapban, mint ő, és még kevesebben tartanak Nyuráfot a kertjükben. Mesénk hőse egy napsütéses reggelen úgy döntött, vásárol magának egy automobilt. De nem kellett volna... Első útja ugyanis sétakocsikázás helyett katasztrófák sorozata lett, és ez nem csak Kürtő úr kifogásolható vezetési stílusának volt köszönhető, hiszen ki gondolta volna, hogy Erős úr és Paprika asszony után még három útonálló medvébe is beleütközik?_ _Tolkien professzor gyermekei szórakoztatására írta és rajzolta ezt a mesekönyvet, amelyet most fakszimile kiadásban tarthat kezében a kedves Olvasó. A könyv páratlan oldalain megőriztük a mester saját kézírását és csodálatos rajzait, a páros oldalakon pedig az eredeti angol szöveg magyar fordítása olvasható._

Originally published in 1900, it was the first truly American fairy tale, as Baum crafted a wonderful out of such familiar items as a cornfield scarecrow, a mechanical woodman, and a humbug wizard who used old-fashioned hokum to express that universal theme, "There's no place like home."

Giles Andreae - Giraffes Can't Dance
All the jungle's got the beat, but Gerald the giraffe has four left feet. Such is the dilemma in this British team's bouncy if didactic picture book about self-esteem. As a multitude of fleet-footed beasts eagerly "skip and prance" at the annual Jungle Dance in Africa, Gerald feels sad "because when it comes to dancing/ he was really very bad." Jeered by waltzing warthogs and cha-cha-ing chimps when he attempts to cut a rug, Gerald hangs his head and leaves the celebration behind. Luckily, a friendly cricket appears in the moonlight, chirping a morale-boosting song of self-confidence that soon sets Gerald in graceful motion. Andreae's rhyming text has a jaunty rhythm that's likely to spark interest in the read-aloud crowd, in spite of a heavy-handed message. Parker-Rees's kicky depictions of slightly anthropomorphic animals boogying on the dance floor are the highlight here. His watercolor and pen-and-ink artwork exudes a fun, party vibe. Ages 3-6.
