Explore the humorous world of opposites with the #1 bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit and his band of Hueys! "What's the opposite of the beginning?" A sensible question to ask when opening a book that teaches the reader about opposites. But maybe we should start with something a little easier? For example, it's quite unlucky when a Huey finds himself stranded on a hot, deserted island—but how lucky it is when a fan arrives to provide some cool air! Oh, wait . . . nowhere to plug it in? Unlucky, once again. Now for a harder one: What’s the difference between half full and half empty? Stumped? Don’t worry, that one will make a Huey’s head hurt too. In this funny concept book from the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit, Oliver Jeffers takes us on a delightful ride through the world of contraries. Praise for The Hueys in What's the Opposite? * "Even readers who know the basics of opposites will get their minds blown here, as a glass is considered half full on one page but also half empty on the next. It’s not easy to be so very simple and so very clever, but Jeffers manages in this laugh-aloud offering that will get groups giggling."—Booklist, starred review * "An amusing twist on the traditional concept book by a beloved master of shape and line."—School Library Journal, starred review "A clever concept book from beginning to end."—Kirkus Reviews

Man sieht mit dem Herzen: Ein kleines Mädchen, neugierig und wissensbedürftig hat den Kopf voller Fragen und findet in ihrem Opa einen geduldigen Zuhörer und Erklärer. Er weiss über viel Bescheid und gibt es sehr gerne an sie weiter, ob am Meer oder in der Nacht, immer weiss sie, dass sie ihn auf seinem Sessel finden kann. Aber eines Tages ist der Sessel leer. Verunsichert und um es wirklich nicht zu verlieren, packt sie ihr Herz in eine Flasche und hängt sie sich um den Hals. Aber nun ist nichts mehr wie zuvor, Sterne, Ozean, sie hat keine Fragen mehr, die einzige Änderung ist die Flasche, die immer schwerer und hässlicher wird. Bis sie jemanden trifft, der kleiner und jünger ist und voller Fragen, wie sie früher. Sie beschliesst, ihr Herz wieder aus der Flasche zu holen, benötigt aber noch einmal Hilfe dazu. Ihr Herz kehrt an seinen Platz zurück und auch der Sessel ist nicht mehr so leer. Ein wunderschön illustriertes Buch zum Thema Trauern und dem Verlust von einer Person, der man nahe stand. Aber auch wie wichtig es für ein Kind ist, immer eine Ansprechsperson für alle Anliegen und Fragen zu haben. Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Monika Hedinger.

Tommie Bauer is an ordinary young American drafted into a war to defend freedom in Southeast Asia, a war that consumes his life, as he knew it. Through the eyes of this highly trained young patriot, we discover how constant exposure to killing, death and dying poses a serious threat to the psychological, physical and emotional wellbeing of a combatant. Day to day, while humping the thick jungles of Vietnam, Bauer escapes one day's nightmare only to be engulfed in more gruesome ones in following days. His assigned mission is to seek and destroy the enemy. However, his immediate mission becomes the struggle to outlast the enemy while battling constant sorrow and hardship. Equally important, he must avoid occupying the next body bag tagged for appropriate disposal. He has to kill or be killed and do his part to increase the enemy body count, the bloody measure of who is "winning." Bauer finds himself trapped in this brutal and morally confusing nether world. During his journey through hell he meets a precocious young nurse while convalescing. She unknowingly becomes the incentive Bauer needs to endure his ordeal. This is Bauer's story, his struggle to rationalize the need for war and the carnage it creates. He is troubled by his exposure to combat and the changes he sees within himself, which he knows might haunt him the rest of his life.

Mad Minutes and Vietnam Months

A Soldier’s Memoir

Author: Micheal Clodfelter

Publisher: McFarland

This thoughtful memoir recounts one man’s transformation from a glory-seeking, gung-ho Kansas teenager to a weary, twice-wounded grunt who had volunteered for a second tour of duty. Enlisting in the Army in June 1964 at age 17, Micheal Clodfelter was assigned to an artillery battalion of the 101st Airborne Division and arrived at Cam Ranh Bay on July 29, 1965; on August 9, 1966, after having requested a transfer to the infantry, he was assigned to Charlie Company, 2/502nd Airborne, serving in Phu Yen and Kontum provinces. A second injury resulted in his medical evacuation from Vietnam on January 8, 1967. Describing the intensity of “mad minutes” (the general discharge of all weapons along a defense perimeter to discourage a potential enemy attack) amid the monotony, exhaustion and horror of war, Clodfelter writes of entering “a territory from which none of us ever really returned.”

Odran Yates kommt 1972 an das renommierte Dubliner »Clonliffe Seminary«, um Priester zu werden. Voller Hingabe widmet er sich seinen Studien. Er kann es kaum erwarten, endlich Gutes zu tun. Vierzig Jahre später ist sein Vertrauen in die katholische Kirche jedoch zutiefst erschüttert. Er muss dabei zusehen, wie Priester vor Gericht stehen, wie einstige Würdenträger ins Gefängnis kommen und wie das Leben zahlreicher Kollegen zerstört wird. Odran zieht sich zurück – aus Angst vor den missbilligenden Blicken seiner Umwelt. Erst als bei einem Familientreffen alte Wunden aufgerissen werden, sieht er sich gezwungen, sich den Ereignissen zu stellen und seine Komplizenschaft zu erkennen.
