'For some time now, I've been getting visits, every now and again, from December II, the little pot-bellied king. He's about three inches tall and so fat that he can't button up his tiny red velvet coat with the magnificent ermine collar...' Little King December comes from a place where, the day you are born, you wake up fully grown and fully clothed. And that very first day of your life you go into your office, do some deals, write a computer programme, or sell foreign rights in a first novel. But every day you get a little bit smaller and you forget a little bit more, so that at the end of your life you are tiny, and you spend your days forgetting things, eating chocolate bears and chasing shadows in the garden... Beautifully illustrated by Michael Sowa, this is an enchanting and moving fable sure to become a classic. Axel Hacke's books are bestsellers in Germany and have been translated into several languages.

Die Kindheit liegt am Ende des Lebens. Ob das gut ist? Das muss der kleine König Dezember selber sagen. Man kann ihn alles Mögliche fragen. Kann mit ihm auf dem Balkon liegen und die Sterne anschauen und über Unsterblichkeit reden. Kann die Schachteln anschauen, in denen er seine Träume aufbewahrt. Oder man geht mit ihm durch die Straßen und sieht, was man noch nie gesehen hat. Das ist sehr schön.

Introduces key terms, global concepts, debates, and histories for Children's Literature in an updated edition Over the past decade, there has been a proliferation of exciting new work across many areas of children’s literature and culture. Mapping this vibrant scholarship, the Second Edition of Keywords for Children’s Literature presents original essays on essential terms and concepts in the field. Covering ideas from “Aesthetics” to “Voice,” an impressive multidisciplinary cast of scholars explores and expands on the vocabulary central to the study of children’s literature. The second edition of this Keywords volume goes beyond disciplinary and national boundaries. Across fifty-nine print essays and nineteen online essays, it includes contributors from twelve countries and an international advisory board from over a dozen more. The fully revised and updated selection of critical writing—more than half of the essays are new to this edition—reflects an intentionally multinational perspective, taking into account non-English traditions and what childhood looks like in an age of globalization. All authors trace their keyword’s uses and meanings: from translation to poetry, taboo to diversity, and trauma to nostalgia, the book’s scope, clarity, and interdisciplinary play between concepts make this new edition of Keywords for Children’s Literature essential reading for scholars and students alike.

Elizabeth Gaskell's The Life of Charlotte Brontë (1857) is a pioneering biography of one great Victorian woman novelist by another. Gaskell was a friend of Charlotte Brontë, and, having been invited to write the official life, determined both to tell the truth and to honour her friend. She contacted those who had known Charlotte and travelled extensively in England and Belgium to gather material. She wrote from a vivid accumulation of letters, interviews, and observation, establishing the details of Charlotte's life and recreating her background. Through an often difficult and demanding process, Gaskell created a vital sense of a life hidden from the world. This edition is based on the Third Edition of 1857, revised by Gaskell. It has been collated with the manuscript, and the previous two editions, as well as with Charlotte Brontë's letters, and thus offers fuller information about the process of composition than any previous edition.

When I was a little boy I had a little, silent bear called Sunday So begins a story in which a boy and his bear are so inseparable - in the way that bears and children often become. When the little boy goes to the swings, the bear goes too and sits in the swing next to him, when he goes to the lavatory the little bear sits next to him on a tiny potty. They are the best of friends. But the little bear never says anything. And he never gives the boy a kiss. Doubts cross the boy's mind- does the little bear love the boy as much as he loves him? Is the bear really alive? He tries to get some sign of life out of the bear. And then one night the boy has a dream... A beautifully poetic story about the magical world of children and bears.

"Als ich ein kleiner Junge war, besaß ich einen schweigsamen kleinen Bären, der hieß Sonntag." So beginnt diese Geschichte, in der der Junge und sein Sonntag so unzertrennlich sind, wie das bei Kindern und Bären ja häufiger vorkommt. Doch beschleichen den Jungen eines Tages Zweifel: Hat dieser Bär da mich genauso lieb wie ich ihn? Ist er richtig lebendig? Er versucht, dem Bären ein Lebenszeichen zu entlocken, er denkt nach - und dann hat er eines Nachts einen Traum. "Axel Hacke erzählt die beunruhigende, erleichternde Geschichte einer wunderbaren Freundschaft., die Michael Sowa großartig illustriert hat.

»Wenn man die Alternativen bedenkt, geht es dem Menschen mit seinem Paarungsverhalten nicht schlecht. Wir müssen nicht, wie die Aale, für die Sensation des einzigen Geschlechtsaktes im Leben Tausende von Kilometern, an Haien und Kraken vorbei, in irgendeine Sargasso-See schwimmen. Nur zum Beispiel. Wir haben es ganz gut. Kennen ein Gefühl, das ›Liebe‹ heißt. Leben, in vielen Fällen, friedlich mit einem Menschen anderen Geschlechts ein ganzes Leben lang zusammen. Es gibt ja Leute, die hassen es, wenn schon um fünf vor sechs am Nachmittag im Büro das Telefon klingelt und ihre Stimme ›Wo bleibst du denn?‹ fragt. Es gibt auch welche, die könnten schreien vor Wut, wenn sie auf dem Weg zu einem gemeinsamen Ziel mit dem Auto rechts abbiegen, und die Stimme vom Beifah­rer­sitz fragt sofort, warum sie nicht geradeaus gefahren seien. Jedoch: Ohne die Frage, ohne die Stimme wäre es ihnen auch nicht recht. Natürlich wäre es einfacher zu lieben, wenn es all die Wobleibstdudenns nicht gäbe, wenn die Liebe tagaus, tagein immer so groß bliebe, wie sie eigentlich ist. Aber so einfach sind das Leben und die Liebe nicht zu haben.« »Das Beste aus meinem Liebesleben« versammelt Axel Hackes Geschichten aus den Beziehungssümpfen des Alltags–Geschichten, die man mit größtem Vergnügen liest.
