A charming reimagining of Sleeping Beauty that “will appeal to younger middle grade readers who like fantasy, fractured fairy tales, and adventure” (School Library Journal)! William and his little brother, Pinch, have been left alone at their home atop the mountain. When a witch named Morga shows up, William is forced to embark on a terrifying journey, the worst part of which is Morga herself. She has three riddles for William to solve, with only the help of an odd fellow who wakes up a different size every day and a tiny yellow dragon who can dream storms into reality. Three riddles. Three chances to lift an ancient curse. Three chances to save his family. Part fantasy and part fairy tale, and sprinkled with charming black-and-white illustrations, William and the Witch’s Riddle is a loose retelling of Sleeping Beauty and an adventure that’s just right for middle graders. Praise for Shutta Crum’s Thomas and the Dragon Queen: “Both heartwarming and full of surprises. . . . A must-read.” —School Library Journal, Starred review “The quick pace, thrilling escapes, and subtly detailed medieval setting will all be appealing to early fantasy readers.” —The Bulletin “A sure-fire hit as a read-aloud, this is an engaging book featuring a hero filled with bravery, quick wits, and heart.” —The Horn Book

Wenn dieses Buch dich umbringen könnte – würdest du es dann lesen? Als die Studentin Ariel Manto in einem Antiquariat auf eine Ausgabe von «The End of Mister Y» stößt, traut sie ihren Augen kaum. Sie weiß, dass dieses Buch überaus selten ist. Und dass angeblich bisher niemand die Lektüre überlebt hat. Ariel glaubt nicht an Flüche. Unerschrocken vertieft sie sich selbst in die aberwitzige Geschichte des Mister Y, der mit Hilfe eines Elixiers in eine andere Dimension reist: die Troposphäre, sprich die Gedankenwelt der ganzen Menschheit. Ariel glaubt auch nicht an Wunderdrogen, dennoch startet sie einen Selbstversuch – und ahnt nicht, was sie dabei aufs Spiel setzt ... «Ein literarisches Gedankenexperiment mit beträchtlichem Suchtpotential.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) «Ein spannender, lustiger, intelligenter Science-Fiction-Postpop-Roman.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «‹Troposphere› ist ein Meisterwerk. Eine brillante, fesselnde Geschichte, die das Wesen des Seins und die Struktur der Welt in Frage stellt.» (Douglas Coupland)

"Ah you want the short version do ya, a few wee passages to feed your curiosity? Young folk these days, no patience at all. Well I won't do it ya hear, I'll tell you all of it or I'll tell you none! So shut your wee traps". In a shrouded, forgotten part of Ireland, lies a quaint little town called Glenishcale. Steeped in myth and legend, it is home to some of Ireland’s most eccentric and outlandish characters who burst through the pages of the story. The superstitious inhabitants are unaware that in their village lies an ancient passageway to the underground realm of Eile, where dark, fantastical creatures lurk and an evil warlock rules. An outbreak of strange occurrences coincides with the arrival of Kelster, a rebellious red-head. When it transpires that Kelster is the key to fulfilling a 900 year old prophecy, pranks and buffoonery are set aside as she enlists the help of her new friends in unearthing Glenishcale’s darkest legend.

Nach dem großen Erfolg ihres Märchenromans DRACHENREITER nun eine witzige Ritter- und Zaubergeschichte im unverwechselbaren, packenden Funke-Stil und mit stimmungsvollen Illustrationen der Autorin. Auf Burg Bibernell ist wirklich was los! Jeder Stein hat sein Geheimnis, und selbst der Burggraben birgt mehr als nur Wasser mit Entengrütze. Hier wohnt Igraine mit ihrem großen Bruder und ihren Eltern. Zu Igraines Leidwesen beschäftigt sich ihre Familie lieber mit der Zauberei als mit den ritterlichen Pflichten. Igraine möchte nämlich nichts lieber als eine berühmte Ritterin werden! Doch dazu muss sie erst einmal ein richtiges Abenteuer bestehen. Das lässt auch nicht lange auf sich warten: Kurz nach Igraines Geburtstag wird die Burg von Feinden belagert! Ihre Eltern sind leider keine Hilfe, denn durch einen kleinen "Zauber-Unfall" haben sie sich ausgerechnet in Schweine verwandelt. Aber Igraine hat die rettende Idee ...
