Dr. Seuss - Ha lenne egy cirkuszom
Tadammm! Egy bestia! Foltos a szőre, és irdatlan irtózat fogai tőre. Mind, aki közel megy, menten kinyúvad, neve se semmi: a Balkörmű Dúvad. A fiatal McBirkusz Móric arról ábrándozik, hogy az üres, sarki telekre felhúz egy sátrat, és létrehozza saját cirkuszát. Még szép, hogy ez lesz minden idők legcirkuszabb cirkusza, a szupercirklatívusz! Porondra lép Humor Hunor, a Kacsintó Kucsmás, a Híjatlan Díjász, a Kétfele-Lények, a Balkörmű Dúvad, és még sokan mások Mi pedig csak ámulunk és nevetünk a fantázia szabad szárnyalásán és Dr. Seuss nyelvi leleményein. Dr. Seuss neve fogalom: ő a gyerekirodalom egyik legnépszerűbb alakja. Figurái elsőre gyakran furának tűnnek, ám egy-kettőre szívünkbe zárjuk őket. Dr. Seuss egyedülálló képi világa, humoros és zseniálisan egyszerű versei a legkisebbektől a már önállóan olvasókig mindenkit megszólítanak. A Kolibri Klasszikusok sorozatban végre magyarul is hozzáférhetőek Dr. Seuss hiánypótló könyvei, Szabó T. Anna hihetetlenül kreatív, mégis szöveghű fordításában.
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.
T. S. Eliot - Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
Cats! Some are sane and some are mad and some are good and some are bad. Meet magical Mr Mistoffelees, sleepy Old Deuteronomy and curious Rum Tum Tugger. But you'll be lucky to meet Macavity because Macavity's not there! In 1925 T. S. Eliot became co-director of Faber & Faber, who remain his publishers to this day. Throughout the 1930s he composed the now famous poems about Macavity, Old Deuteronomy, Mr Mistoffelees and many other cats, under the name of 'Old Possum'. In 1981 Eliot's poems were set to music by Andrew Lloyd Webber as Cats, which went on to become the longest-running Broadway musical in history and is now a film starring Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Francesca Hayward and James Corden. With illustrations by Rebecca Ashdown. The Christmas, you will believe!
Julia Donaldson - The Gruffalo
This rhythmic read-aloud par excellence follows a clever mouse on a walk through the deep dark wood, where he encounters several hungry inhabitants who want to make him their main course. Lacking size or strength as defenses, quick-witted Mouse instead taps the powers of his imagination to create the gruffalo, a "terrible creature with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in his terrible jaws." But will Mouse's frightful description be enough to ruin the appetites of his determined foes? After all, there's no such thing as a gruffalo. Oh, no??
Shel Silverstein - The Missing Piece
"It was missing a piece. And it was not happy. So it set off in search of its missing piece. And as it rolled it sang this song: Oh I'm lookin' for my missin' piece I'm lookin' for my missin' piece Hi-dee-ho, here I go, Lookin' for my missin' piece." What it finds on its search for the missing piece is simply and touchingly told in this fable that gently probes the nature of quest and fulfillment.

It's Jack who devises Halloween's most macabre tricks and frights, and he's done it year after year with delight.

Alan Alexander Milne - Now We Are Six
Now We Are Six is a classic book of children's verses, some about A.A. Milne's best-loved characters Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh and others in a more general nonsense vein. The title comes from the final poem of the book: ___ _When I was One,_ ___ _I had just begun._ ___ _When I was Two,_ ___ _I was nearly new._ ___ _When I was Three_ ___ _I was hardly me._ ___ _When I was Four,_ ___ _I was not much more._ ___ _When I was Five, I was just alive._ ___ _But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,_ ___ _So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever._ However, the author says in the introduction: ___ We have been nearly three years writing this book. We began it when we were very young... and now we are six. So, of course, bits of it seem rather baby-ish to us [...] So we want you to know that the name of the book doesn't mean that this is us being six all the time, but the it is about as far as we've got at present, and we half think of stopping there. The poems are illustrated with Ernest H. Shepard's familiar art, including a few into which Winnie-the-Pooh wandered by accident.

Gerzsényi Melinda - Mézike okosodik
Ez itt Mézike világa. Egy apró pici lánykáé, aki egy margarét házikóban ébred minden reggel. Barátja a Nap, a Hold, a csillagok és a sok erdőlakó. Két segítője is van ám! Angyal Pirinyó és Tündér Pillanó. Velük osztja meg gondolatait, tőlük kérdez és tanul. Megmutatják neki miért fontos az akarat, hogyan tudunk kikapcsolni pár percre és csak önmagunkra figyelni, miért csodálatos az ember és főleg a kisgyerek, mire jó a tapasztalat... És megtanulja Mézi meghallani a csendet. Mert a csendnek hangja van... Vagyis: hogyan tudjuk egy kis szülői segítséggel rávezetni gyermekeinket a harmónia, a kiegyensúlyozottság érzeteire. Hogy bármikor, amikor úgy érzik, megtalálják magukban a pihenés szigetét. Hogyan tudjuk felnőttként is visszaidézni magunkban, hogyan is kell kikapcsolódnunk, pár perc alatt felfrissíteni magunkat például a legnagyobb munka közben is.
